Jacksonville's Acosta Bridge spans the St. John's river to join downtown's North and South Riverfront neighborhoods. The Acosta Bridge is shown in the foreground of the photo below:
On October 14 I parked near the base of the bridge along the North Riverfront and took a walk up the bridge to enjoy its amazing views.
(This photo was taken in Starke, FL, on my way to Jacksonville from Tampa.)
