La Porte, Texas

La Porte was given its name "The Door" by French settlers in 1889 when the city was founded on upper Galveston Bay. A deep-water port and petrochemical industries coexist in harmony with a pleasant residential environment and bayshore resorts.

La Porte is the home of the Houston Yacht Club, the second oldest yacht club in the U.S. It is also home of the Sylvan Beach Festival, held on Galveston Bay, the last Saturday in April.
