The area of LaPorte is NOT an unsafe area.
There are some good hotel in LaPorte, about a $5.00 taxi cab ride to the "SEA".
There is a LaQuita Inn and Best Western Inn, all near by and safe. Call directory assistance for their number.
Do NOT listen to those people who cliam its unsafe. They are wrong.
If you are driving your car to the Norwegian Sea, NO problems.
The parking is on Port of Houston property with heavy security around the clock.
