PBI Awards 2018: Best Vantage Point

Those who climb the 105 cast-iron steps to the top of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse are rewarded with the ultimate view, one reflective of its operating organization’s commitment to protecting the region’s natural beauty and cultural heritage. The Loxahatchee River Historical Society runs both the lighthouse and the museum, which welcomed a record-setting 10,000 visitors during the month of March. This year, the lighthouse celebrated the tenth anniversary of its Outstanding Natural Area designation, and also introduced the “Tour Your Way” model that allows sightseers to tour at their own pace with help from a smartphone app. Add to all this a bevy of community activities and events—such as the weekly Twilight Yoga at the Light series, the annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and the captivating moonrise and sunset tours—and you have the recipe for a one-of-a-kind institution that infuses ecological wonder into everyday life.
