Besides heroin use, I do not hear much about crime in La Porte. However, I do hear quite a bit about crime in Michigan City which is very close to La Porte.

There are a lot of stores that sell odds and ends and not what people are looking to buy. Most people go to the neighboring city, Michigan city, for shopping and dinner outings.
I think this was a good area to grow up in but the schools could be better and there could be more things to do for teens and kids. Heroin use is very much on the rise in La Porte County and I think that the lack of things to do for teens and kids is a big contributor to this issue.
