    Alanton neighborhood in Virginia BeachWhat a super neighborhood! Alanton has some really great homes and some SUPER views. The neighborhood is tucked away off Great Neck Road against the water. It juts out into the water between Linkhorn Bay and Broad Bay. Many of the waterfront homes have views of the opposite shore where we have First Landing State Park and Narrows Beach. The neighborhood has a great rural feel with mature trees, flowers, and often, 1 acre+ yards. Boaters in this area access the ocean from the Lynnhaven Inlet, under the Lesner Bridge and through the Chesapeake Bay.

    Alanton has a VERY active civic league. They actively represent the neighborhood to the city and help keep the neighborhood's rural feel. They encourage residence to attend their meetings and give input. The hold Easter Egg hunts, picnics, and a 4th of July parade with hundreds of participants. This is followed by the Grand Picnic. The organizers put up pictures of every event on the Civic League's website. which is www.Alanton.org. They also have a facebook page at www.facebook.com/alanton.civic.league. 

    Local points of interest very close to Alanton include First Colonial High School, Frank W.
