The location of Alton









Introduction ...

Whether we're planning a trip and want to make reservations or still at home and looking for a place to eat, we usually start by visiting the TripAdvisor website. Once on their website we search for what's available, then check the recommendations and experiences of other people.

Although there are many ways of searching the TripAdvisor website, we prefer to start with the TripAdvisor Tourism page. On the Tourism page you'll find a quick overview of the community, with links to restaurants, lodging, flights, rentals and nearby attractions.

In addition, you'll find a link to the TripAdvisor Forum for AltonIf you have a question about your travel plans, post it on their Forum and see if others can give you an answer.

All of this can be found on the TripAdvisor's Tourism page for Alton.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Alton) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Alton. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alton

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alton. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.9875, Longitude: -96.0093     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Alton have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
