About La Porte


The City of La Porte is home to the San Jacinto Monument and Battleground for Texas’ Independence. It is also the center of the 2nd largest petrochemical/refining complex in the world and gateway to the Houston Ship Channel. Technological advances are attracting plenty of new industrial investments in the City. These advances include:

  • Expanding the Panama Canal
  • Expanding the Port of Houston’s Barbour’s Cut and Bayport Terminals
  • Fracking and extracting natural gas
  • Opening of the Houston Bayport Cruise Terminal

New Retail & Restaurant Development


La Porte is fortunate to attract so much industrial trade and investment, daytime employment, high-average household incomes and tourism. It suffers, however, from a lack of new retail and restaurant development. La Porte epitomizes the backbone of the resurging U.S. economy.

The citizens of La Porte are hardworking people with solid incomes in a solid, diverse economy that is slated to grow for generations to come.
