La Porte Fun Facts #2

Did you know that during the 1920s & 1930’s La Porte’s Sylvan Beach became a nationally recognized destination featuring beauty contests, celebrations and regular performances by famous bands?

In the 1930s the park was revamped including a large boardwalk, amusement rides, and many other attractions. Erosion began in 1928 due to the wakes of shipping traffic and by the later 20th-century erosion had completely eliminated the beach.

Sylvan Beach is now a spot for many celebrations throughout the year including the Sylvan Beach Festival. Visitors can enjoy the beach made of fine sand a no seaweed and smaller waves allow for more enjoyable swimming. There is also fishing, a boat ramp, and air-conditioned pavilion.

La Porte’s Sylvan Beach is the perfect spot for a family fun day. Bring a picnic lunch and stay for the day!
