These photos of the bridge in Jacksonville were taken from a riverview room at the Hyatt Regency in Jacksonville. The Alsop Bridge is also known as the Main Street Bridge and it spans the St. John's River. This bridge looks great during the day, and even better at night when it is lit up. The Main Street Bridge in Jacksonville is a lift bridge which is similar to a drawbridge allowing large ships to pass underneath. However, this lift system raises the midsection deck horizontally.
If you can't take a picture of the bridge from a hotel room, Downtown Jacksonville has a spacious riverwalk where the views from there are still impressive. If need more room to stretch your legs, Jacksonville is only 20 miles from uncrowded Florida beaches.
