Jupiter, FL

Jupiter, Florida is the northernmost town in Palm Beach County, Florida. According to the 2014 Census Bureau estimate, the town had a total population of 60,681. It was rated as the 9th Happiest Seaside Town in America by Coastal Living in 2012.[9] The area where the town now sits was originally named for the HobeIndian tribe which lived at the mouth of the Loxahatchee River, and whose name is also preserved in the name of nearby Hobe Sound.[10] A mapmaker misunderstood the Spanish spelling "Jobe" of the Indian name "Hobe" and recorded it as "Jove".[11] Subsequent mapmakers further misunderstood this to be the Latin translation of the god Jupiter, and they anglicized the name from Jove to "Jupiter". The Roman god Jupiter (or Zeus in the Greek mythology) is the chief Roman god, and god of light, of the sky and weather, and of the state and its welfare and its laws. Jupiter's consort was Juno, inspiring a neighboring town to name itself "Juno Beach".[12]
