There's a good possibility that my Husband & I will be moving to Missouri. His job transfer would be to the town of Alton. If anyone out there can give us an idea of a great safe & beautiful place to live ,from the get go, it would be greatly appreciated. I've heard of alot of wonderful places on the blog but none about a 30-40 min drive in any direction from Alton. St Louis is out of the question. Maybe a rural sm town with homes of 38-4500 sq feet. to lease.on acreage. Thanks for any input you all might have.

Alton, Missouri is very very very far from St. Louis. Are you sure you didnt mean Alton, IL?

If you did mean to post about Alton, MO, I would suggest posting this in the Missouri Forum rather than the St. Louis forum.

Alton, IL sits 25 miles out of St Louis.

Alton, MO is about 300 miles out of St Louis.

Alton Mo. is in a galaxy far, far away. If you are serious I suggest you take a look at West Plains first.

LOL, why not the metropolis of Poplar Bluff?
I am sure the OP means West Alton, in St Charles County.
Now y'all play nice, and tell the lady what she needs to know, I am outta the St Charles loop, I have not lived there in a long time.

I grew up in East Alton, Illinois (Rosewood Heights to be exact) and left when I was 18. There is not
really anything to do there but I haven't lived there for more than 30 years. It was a nice enough
place to raise a family and the last I recall, housing prices were a lot lower than what I am used to
(I currently live in Denver). The neighborhoods in Rosewood Heights were quiet and filled with
mostly older residents. My father lives in Airwood Manor subdivision and my mother lives in Wood
River. I would choose Rosewood Heights before Wood River. Good Luck

If she is talking about Alton, Missouri, I got nothing. Also, West Alton is about the size of my foot, so I don't think she's talking about that either. If Alton, Il is where you are headed, I think Edwardville is the place you need to call home. Has the home size and acreage you are looking for in a great town. Check it out.

Default Into Edwardsville

Yes, I would agree with this poster - Edwardsville is the county seat of
Madison county and has a lot of historical qualities. It is only about half
an hour drive from St. Louis. It is also a college town with Southern
Illinois University (at Edwardsville) close by. Likewise, Alton is also
about a half hour drive away. The difference is that Alton is on the river
and Edwardsville sits on the bluff some miles from the river. Either way,
if you like hot, humid, sticky summers - both locations will be good for you.
