There are a handful of exchanges that offer access to the more liquid alternative cryptocurrencies ("alt coins"). However, they can be a bit confusing for beginners.
Binance - Exchange the World

You will need to transfer coins into Binance in order to buy into alternative coins since there is no direct way to buy into coins through credit card or bank account.
