Alton Neighborhood

When I said yesterday that Alton is like a mini San Fransisco, I wasn’t kidding. Standing at the top of one hill, you see across in every direction to little enclaves of beautiful old homes, from very grand to small and cozy, nestled into the hills.

Colorful neighborhood Alton, IL

Honestly, how picturesque is that?! I would pick just about any one of those houses to live in and be quite happy! It just looks like one of those places were everyone on the street knows their neighbors and is chock full of small town charm…

(I would love for you to come back to visit, so please SUBSCRIBE using one of the buttons I have up there at the top on the left. And be sure to find me on Facebook for behind the scenes stuff and general goofiness. I’m on Twitter, too, but be warned – I have been known to accidentally tweet-bomb during baseball season!)
