In the City of La Porte, the fun doesn’t stop when the weather gets cold – we’re Livin’ the Lake Life all year round!
The turning of the leaves means primetime for a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. Swing by the La Porte Farmers Market in Downtown La Porte. Then spend an afternoon picking apples at Garwood Orchards, a 6th generation farm just outside city limits – don’t forget the apple cider and donuts!
Take in the crisp autumn air and fall foliage on a stroll around beautiful Stone Lake or on a bike ride down the Chessie Trail. Then treat yourself to a pumpkin spice latte at any one of our local coffee shops or cafes.
Looking for some spooky fun? Hitch a ride through haunted woods on the Ghost Train at the Hesston Steam Museum. Afterwards, true crime fans should head over to the La Porte County Historical Society Museum to learn more about the infamous Belle Gunness murders.

at the 9th Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5K. After resting up on Black Friday, do some shopping around Historic Downtown La Porte for Small Business Saturday. Then get in the holiday spirit at the La Porte Santa Parade.
Get your collector’s tin and enjoy some sweet treats from the Annual Downtown Cookie Walk. Sing along to your favorite Christmas carols at La Porte County Symphony Orchestra’s Holiday at the Pops.
