Basic Viewport Navigation Question

I see that I can switch between a top view (Alt + j) and Perspective (Alt + g). But what I’d really like to do is switch to a top view, work like that, and then use my mouse to tilt to get some perspective when needed. I’d work in perspective for a while and then snap back to a top view. Is that possible?

The way it seems to work, is that I’m forced to use the keyboard shortcuts to switch between the views and that means I’m always juggling 2 cameras because if I’m looking at a tree in perspective view and then I switch to a top view to look at a rock, when I go back to perspective I’m looking at the tree again.
