I have added a small map below, from Google Earth, that shows the fairly square area of Alton.
The top of the square is Donald Ross road and that is the northern boundary of Alton. The western boundary is the Turnpike with Eastpointe on its west side. The southern boundary is Hood road. The eastern boundary is near Central Boulevard, but developments are already on the west side of Central Boulevard. Driving from Donald Ross in the north to Hood Road in the south, you will pass a small Walgreens shopping center, the Legends residential community, the Benjamin school, and lastly, San Michelle as you approach Hood road.
Also off to the east you will see Magnolia Bay, and then Evergrene with lots of very nice homes. To the north you will find Abacoa and the town of Jupiter. Yes, the beaches are a little over 3 miles to the east!
