Although much of Jacksonville is urban, this sprawling northeastern Florida city also has nature and wildlife preserves, historic residential neighborhoods and lots of golf courses. Attractions in Jax, as the locals call it, range from art, science and history museums to a brewery tour, from the Jacksonville Landing entertainment complex, along the St. John's River, to Bronson Motor Speedway. The city's beaches offer soft sand and warm water perfect for swimming, surfing and kayaking.
The original St. Elmo W. Acosta Bridge structure was built in 1921. It was Jacksonville's first road bridge to span the St. Johns River and the state's first vertical lift span. Originally called the St. Johns River Bridge, it was renamed in 1949 for City Commissioner St. Elmo "Chic" Acosta, who convinced voters to approve a $950,000 bond issue for the original bridge. Its replacement opened in 1991, but still bears the Acosta name.
After dark the Acosta is edged in neon purple lights, providing an attractive addition to the night lights of the city of Jacksonville.
