Spring Training Vacation Guide to Jupiter, Florida

Your Teams: St. Louis Cardinals, Miami Marlins

The Schedules: The Cardinals play 34 games, with 16 home games (see schedule and buy tickets here). The Marlins play 35 games, with 18 home games (see schedule and buy tickets here).

The Field: The Cardinals and Marlins share the posh confines of Roger Dean Stadium, part of a $28-million sports complex purpose-built to accommodate both teams and their Class A minor-league affiliates. The fan-friendly 7,000-seat stadium features a right-field Party Deck, outfield berm seating for picnickers, and a new Bullpen Club with bar-style seating.

Inside Baseball/Cardinals: It’s hard to quibble with any of St. Louis’ off-season decisions. [Dexter] Fowler was an expensive addition, but he was the best option on the market for the Cardinals, and he should be a valuable producer atop the lineup. St. Louis still might not have enough firepower to catch the Cubs atop the division, but the race should be closer this year if everything breaks right for the Cardinals. For more on the Cardinals, go here at si.com.

Inside Baseball/Marlins: At best, the moves [the front office] made leave the Marlins back where they started. Miami has a tantalizing young offensive core that’s only getting better, but the starting pitching is not there. For more on the Marlins, go here at si.com.

To browse all 12 Grapefruit League destinations, go here.

Best Beach: Family friendly Dubois Park has the largest beach in Jupiter; take a swim or snorkel in a lagoon or rent a kayak to explore the Jupiter Inlet area. The DuBois Pioneer Home, located in the park, was built in 1898, listed on the National Register of Historical Places, and is open for tours.

Family Outings: Walk or bike the Jupiter Riverwalk, a 2.5-mile coastal trail alongside the Intracoastal Waterway where you can see manatees, stingrays, and other marine life as well as ospreys and maybe even a bald eagle. The Riverwalk runs from the Jupiter Ridge Natural Area to the Jupiter Inlet and also provides access to the Jupiter Yacht Club Marina, which has shops and waterfront dining, the Harborside Place entertainment complex, and the Plaza Down Under, site of frequent festivals.

High-end Stay: The Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa is set behind the dunes on a quiet stretch of beach; guests can enjoy expert-led sea turtle walks and a wide variety of amenities, including an oceanfront pool, tennis, basketball, fitness center, fire pits, and spa. Rates from $273 per night.

Value Stay: The Fairfield Inn and Suites West Palm Beach Jupiter is just five miles from Roger Dean Stadium and also close to the Jupiter Inlet and its historic lighthouse and museum. Rates from $142 per night.

Spring Training Vacation Guide to Jupiter, Florida – Coastal Living

Your Teams: St. Louis Cardinals, Miami Marlins

The Schedules: The Cardinals play 34 games, with 16 home games (see schedule and buy tickets here). The Marlins play 35 games, with 18 home games (see schedule and buy tickets here).

The Field: The Cardinals and Marlins share the posh confines of Roger Dean Stadium, part of a $28-million sports complex purpose-built to accommodate both teams and their Class A minor-league affiliates. The fan-friendly 7,000-seat stadium features a right-field Party Deck, outfield berm seating for picnickers, and a new Bullpen Club with bar-style seating.

Inside Baseball/Cardinals: It’s hard to quibble with any of St. Louis’ off-season decisions. [Dexter] Fowler was an expensive addition, but he was the best option on the market for the Cardinals, and he should be a valuable producer atop the lineup. St. Louis still might not have enough firepower to catch the Cubs atop the division, but the race should be closer this year if everything breaks right for the Cardinals. For more on the Cardinals, go here at si.com.

Inside Baseball/Marlins: At best, the moves [the front office] made leave the Marlins back where they started. Miami has a tantalizing young offensive core that’s only getting better, but the starting pitching is not there. For more on the Marlins, go here at si.com.

To browse all 12 Grapefruit League destinations, go here.

Best Beach: Family friendly Dubois Park has the largest beach in Jupiter; take a swim or snorkel in a lagoon or rent a kayak to explore the Jupiter Inlet area. The DuBois Pioneer Home, located in the park, was built in 1898, listed on the National Register of Historical Places, and is open for tours.

Family Outings: Walk or bike the Jupiter Riverwalk, a 2.5-mile coastal trail alongside the Intracoastal Waterway where you can see manatees, stingrays, and other marine life as well as ospreys and maybe even a bald eagle. The Riverwalk runs from the Jupiter Ridge Natural Area to the Jupiter Inlet and also provides access to the Jupiter Yacht Club Marina, which has shops and waterfront dining, the Harborside Place entertainment complex, and the Plaza Down Under, site of frequent festivals.

High-end Stay: The Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa is set behind the dunes on a quiet stretch of beach; guests can enjoy expert-led sea turtle walks and a wide variety of amenities, including an oceanfront pool, tennis, basketball, fitness center, fire pits, and spa. Rates from $273 per night.

Value Stay: The Fairfield Inn and Suites West Palm Beach Jupiter is just five miles from Roger Dean Stadium and also close to the Jupiter Inlet and its historic lighthouse and museum. Rates from $142 per night.

Indian River Lagoon money proposed

Sen. Debbie Mayfield, R-Vero Beach, has filed a proposal that would provide voter-approved money for restoration work in the Indian River Lagoon system. Mayfield’s proposal (SB 982) would send $15 million to the St. Johns River Water Management District and another $15 million to the South Florida Water Management District.

Mayfield wants the districts to use the money to help restore the Indian River Lagoon system, which covers the waterways from the Ponce de Leon Inlet in Volusia County south to the Jupiter Inlet in northern Palm Beach County.

The measure is similar to a proposal (SB 234) filed last month by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, that would send $35 million a year to help pay for projects to restore the St. Johns River, its tributaries or lakes in the Keystone Heights region.

Both proposals seek money from the state’s Land Acquisition Trust Fund, which is used to carry out a 2014 constitutional amendment aimed at water and land conservation.

Each proposal is at least somewhat similar to money that lawmakers earmarked last year for Everglades projects, natural springs and Lake Apopka under the title “Legacy Florida.”

Love Street developer — for third time — submits Jupiter Inlet plan

Charles Modica

The third Love Street plan – this one far smaller than the original — has been submitted by developer Charles Modica to turn two waterfront acres into “something that Jupiter should be.”

Modica, who also owns the adjacent Rustic Inn restaurant and nearby 10-acre Suni Sands property, wants to link the properties on the Jupiter Inlet into an ecotourism destination.

“I want to get away from the cement, dining and drinking on the waterfront. We’re going to keep the kayak rental, the beach and the fishing boats. There will be a connection to Riverwalk. Love Street will set the stage to get this theme going,” said Modica.

Two restaurants and retail/office are planned for Love Street. An historic inn is planned for the Suni Sands property, along with a boathouse.

The town council must approve the both plans before construction can begin. No date has been set for public meetings on either proposal.

Councilman Jim Kuretski said he’s “encouraged and grateful” that the plan has been scaled back. But parking and traffic issues still must be considered, Kuretski said.

“Downsizing doesn’t always equate into a reduction or traffic and parking,” said Kuretski.

Modica’s original Love Street plan called for a 45-foot-tall observation tower and a restaurant/fish market overlooking the Jupiter Inlet with 21 separate buildings. About 36 vacation rental units, each about 400 square feet, would be on the second floor above the retail shop.

There was about 94,000 square feet of office/retail/ restaurant space. There was a parking garage.

Critics blasted the plan, calling it another Harbourside Place, referring to the 10-acre waterfront retail/hotel/restaurant development on the northwest corner of Indiantown Road and U.S. 1.

Harbourside, which has an outdoor amphitheatre, that has drawn both scorn and praise from locals.

Modica came back with a new retail/restaurant/office complex plan that was about half the size as the original plan. The tower and parking garage were gone. So were the vacation units. The new plan called for about a dozen one- and two-story buildings.

The council approved the plan in June by a 3-2 vote.

But that changed when Modica bought The Rustic Inn Crabhouse 4-acre property for $8.3 million in November. The Rustic Inn is adjacent to Modica’s Love Street property.

The latest plan replaces the plan that was approved.

The Rustic Inn owners have the option of staying, Modica said. He has no plans to demolish the building, he said.

The current plan eliminates the land swap proposal between the town and Modica. The proposal calls for the town to swap two acres of town-owner property on Love Street for 2 acres of property Modica owns east of A1A and south of Parkway Street. Plans call for using the Parkway Street property would be for a parking lot.

Long-range plans call for tying in Suni Sands property, Rustic Inn and Love Street into a office/retail/ecotourism destination that will bring tourists, locals and high-tech jobs to the Inlet Village, an area in Jupiter defined as along A1A between Jupiter Beach Road north to U.S. 1., said Modica.

“In the Google world, they love places where you can work and go kayaking and come up with ideas. We could build offices to attract those type of businesses,” said Modica. “We are not building another Harbourside.”

Original Love Street development, Square feet:

Retail: 30,207

Office: 27,327

Restaurant: 12,917

Vacation rental: 23,520

Total: 93,971

Current Love Street plan, Square feet:

Retail: 4,949

Office: 1,941

Restaurant: 11,162

Total: 18,052

Once affordable housing havens, PBC mobile home parks are vanishing

Mobile home parks are the Florida panthers of Palm Beach County.

Once thriving and common, the parks were a dream come true for regular Joes.

The average working person or retiree could afford to buy or rent one and live comfortably in one of the quirky named parks like Yogi By the Sea in Juno Beach or Maralago Cay in Lantana.

But the parks, like the panthers, are vanishing.
