contentsLa Porte IN Chamberads


La Porte’s downtown continues to be a shopping focal point with stores that carry a variety of goods and necessities. Many restaurants are located in the area and offer a wide range of options. Downtown is also the governmental center of the community with many local and county offices. Several financial and investment services are also situated downtown.

Lincolnway, which passes through the downtown, is the city’s primary commercial artery. Stores, shops and services line much of it to the northeast and southwest. Another small shopping area with a food store, a discount department store and many other shops is located on the far southwest side of Linolnway.

A shopping plaza north of downtown has another larger food store and a farm-oriented department store, and it anchors about a dozen other shops. Commerce continues north on Pine Lake Avenue, with real estate offices, auto dealers, motels, restaurants and others lining each side.

The Greater La Porte Chamber of Commerce is also active in the community. The Chamber has a 5-Star accreditation from the United States Chamber of Commerce and has over 300 members. The Chamber plans community events throughout the year and helps to unite the business community.
