City by the Sea
PALACIOS IS THE ideal place to leave the urban crowds behind and enjoy some small town southern hospitality.
Experience the quiet beauty of water and sky on Matagorda Bay. Enjoy a picnic in one of the bayfront parks, complete with BBQ pits, covered tables and family friendly playgrounds.
Stop by the museum to learn about LaSalle and the French explorers who landed here in the 17th century, then head over to the marina to see a beautifully restored replica of their sunken ship. Discover 20 local historical sites on a self-guided tour.
The Palacios area is home to more bird species than anywhere else in the United States, with seven local birding sites along the Tres Palacios Loop of the Texas Coastal Birding Trail where you can explore pristine wetlands and capture amazing wildlife photos.
Fish off one of the free public piers, grab some friends for a chartered fishing adventure or take a kayak out for a lazy afternoon on the water. In the evening, try out one of the local dinner spots, watch the shrimp boats sail into port and enjoy a perfect sunset in this charming city by the sea. Palacios
