La Porte Real Estate
Just like Galveston, at one time La Porte was home to a water front amusement, and entertainment park. Actually, when it was known as Sylvan Grove back in the 1920s and 30s, the city was so popular that many celebrities from around the United States vacationed, and performed there. At the time, La Porte real estate consisted of cottage rental homes placed at the water’s edge for vacationers, and residents alike. As World War II came into existence, gas rationing curtailed family trips to this tourist attraction, and the constant erosion of the beach made it less and less popular. The shipyards in neighboring areas became the center of economic practicality. Overall, there are a chain of small cities similar to La Porte between Houston, and Galveston that are perfect for suburban living with a dash of Gulf Coast style living thrown in for good measure.

The La Porte-Baytown tunnel further help expansion, and accessibility plus the opening of the Johnson Space Center brought La Porte back to life, and financial stability returned to this once popular vacation spot. Now La Porte homes for sale have residents that work all over the greater Houston area, and make a small daily commute to and from their ocean side themed neighborhoods. There has been talk for the last few decades of brining back the boardwalk theme park style attractions, much like neighboring Kemah has done for it’s residents.
