  Jupiter Inlet    

For years, Jupiter, Florida was known for being home to one of Hollywood's brightest stars and to the country's most brightly colored lighthouse. Burt Reynolds lived on a sprawling ranch in Jupiter for most of his career. During the 1970s and 80s, he was one of the top box office draws, however, he later fell on hard times and ended up declaring bankruptcy in 1996. As for Jupiter's flashy lighthouse, it too has lost some of its former luster. The formerly bright, fire-engine-red Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse underwent an extensive restoration in 1999-2000 and emerged from its shroud of scaffolding and plastic wrap with a more subdued, brick-red coat of paint. Nevertheless, the lighthouse and a museum in honor of Burt still attract scores of visitors to Jupiter.
