La Porte has a storied history that began in the early 1900s when stars visited its famed beaches. As the beaches eroded and the chemical-petro industry became an important part of its economy, the city became more residential along its bays. Waterfront views are available among homes in the communities that run along the bay, from Bay Shore Park all the way down to Shady Oaks. Homes along this stretch of land often come with driveways wide enough to accommodate boats and some have piers jutting into the bay for watersport access. For buyers interested in living inland, most available properties can be found in the centrally located Fairmont Park neighborhood. The regional airport is just minutes away, and family friendly entertainment that includes two splash parks are located here.
