La Porte


OUR STORY

La Porte, Texas is a small Texas town located just south of where the Houston Ship Channel meets Galveston Bay. We are rich in history, and built on community. Established in 1892, many of the families who settled here still call La Porte home and there's a reason for that. A roaring tourist stop in the 40's, La Porte is now a sleepy escape from the reality of the big City. Just 35 minutes from downtown Houston, La Porte offers a quiet escape from reality, friendly faces that will know your name before you leave, and a unique visitor experience that leaves you feeling like a local. From bay views to boutique shopping to history lessons that helped shape our nation, we have much to offer and at a slower pace than this fast paced world can offer! The industry that surrounds us is a huge part of that. The people that live in our community and the work that they do is invaluable to our nation. They tell our story. While we are proud to be an industry town, we are also proud to be so much more. We are truly a hidden gem on galveston bay, and quite frankly we like it that way.
