Things to Do in Alton

It’s not quite the city that never sleeps, but from the time the morning sun illuminates the Mississippi River until the neon lights go dark in the Fast Eddie’s Bon Air sign there’s something to keep you busy in Alton. Shopping in the antique district, seeing where Abraham Lincoln stayed, worked and played or taking in a concert at the open-air amphitheater, the city is ready to show visitors a good time no matter what time it is.
