Enjoy a "Glamping" Experience when Visiting Palm Beach County

Updated: Mar 6


When considering a visit to Palm Beach County, most people are thinking golf, baseball or beaches. Few people consider the wilder side of Palm Beach County, the protected natural areas inland from the beaches. These wetlands and forests are the northern most section of the Everglades. The Headwaters in Jupiter Farms is listed on VRBO and Airbnb. It is is the perfect basecamp to explore this unique eco-system.
