Harbor communities, historic neighborhoods and sweeping farmlands
While our Lake Michigan shoreline is spectacular, there is much to draw you inland. Our thriving communities are rich with experiences, scenic drives, rural landscapes and urban amenities. Take some time to enjoy the full diversity of LaPorte County.
We’re full of excitement! From our Blue Chip Casino to Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets to beautiful Washington Park, there’s always something happening in our harbor community.
The City of LaPorte
Classic Midwestern hospitality greets you in the government seat of LaPorte County. LaPorte’s historic neighborhoods are central to farmlands, fruit orchards and lakes throughout the County.
Enjoy our stunning countryside while picking a basket of produce. Or head back in time with a ride on a genuine coal-fired steam locomotive.
Don’t let the scarecrows at our annual scarecrow festival scare you away—they’re just protecting our incredible Wanatah blueberries.
Relax in our small rural farming towns. Westville was home to LaPorte County’s first settler, Henley Clyburn, who established camp here in 1829.
Rolling Prairie Area
Beautiful, rolling hills of forest, farmland and orchards welcome you. Be sure to visit the miniature horses for a good dose of adorable.
