Jupiter stopover on route to Orlando

Hi. Considering flying into and out of Fort Lauderdale airport from UK next August and splitting a week (3 nights 4 nights) to do either side of our 2 weeks in Orlando. We have done Gulf coast before but it doesn’t make sense this time because of the airport. I’ve been looking at Jupiter and Ft Lauderdale as possible locations.

We will have 2 boys 11 and 8 and would just like to explore the local area, wildlife. Would Jupiter be a good choice? We are happy with hotel, suite or villa - nothing too upmarket but with a pool. Suggestions very welcome.

Jupiter has several,options for wildlife viewing...Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Riverbend Park, Jonathan Dickinson State Park.....kayaking, boat tours, etc. the kayak trip from Riverbend Park to Jonathan Dickson State Park is great. Hotels....August is good time of year for rates.

, as the busy tourist season is winter. Jupiter Beach Resort is a good one....or Courtyard Marriott at Abacoa next to baseball stadium.
