Alton, Texas: Peaceful for Reconnection

Located here in Texas, is my hometown of Alton, Texas and this is the place that I am proud to call home. Living here provides you with peace and quiet. The crime here is basically nonexistent and the local police force are some of the nicest people on this planet.

Living in Alton, Texas means you live in Hidalgo County, Texas. We are very close to the Mexico border, so a lot of the history and heritage here reflects that closeness. The best areas in Alton, Texas are the wide open vast spaces that seem to go for miles

This place is the definition of the simple life. The town is small, but it is growing. It does seem as if every other month a new store or restaurant is being built, but the expansion does not seem to be affecting the overall feel of the local community. This is the place where it is quiet enough to sit and reconnect with nature and your family.
