Downtown Alton

All over the country, towns and cities are looking back to their traditional downtowns as great places to work, play, live and shop! Here in Alton, we are blessed with a unique turn of the century riverfront streetscape that has offered all those options for a long time.

Our unique and vibrant downtown has so much to offer. Downtown residential units offer captivating river views and a walkable lifestyle. Shopping options range from quality lifestyle shops to contemporary fashion. We’ve always been known as the place to party, and more fun bars and new restaurants are opening up all the time. Our artistic community is thriving, with public art and our wonderful arts center.  It’s no wonder Alton was voted “Best Hidden Gem on the Mississippi”!
