It's a very poor area. The streets are horrible with cracks and bumps. People just walk around in the middle of streets like they own it and no car can pass. There are no good stores to go grocery shopping. The crime rate is horrible. You have to drive with your doors locked and be very aware of your environment when grocery shopping cause they like to grab purses. You will not find common stores like Starbucks or HEB here. There are prostitutes and drug dealers hanging out around the stores. I do not like anything about it except for being close to Galveston!

I have long lived in La Marque for a short while (3 yrs), but my overall experience here as been great. Our neighborhood (subdivision) is nice, clean and quiet. Our neighbors are friendly and look-out for one another. So far I am very pleased.
It's very quiet, which I enjoy. Lots of open space and fresh air. As far as I've seen there's little problem with crime or anything like that. It's a nice town and while I didn't feel comfortable moving here from somewhere far away, I'm glad I moved to a place that's tranquil.
