Palacios, Texas – City By The Sea
Palacios is a certified Texas Film Friendly Community.
For some small-town Southern hospitality, leave the urban crowds behind and head down to the last undeveloped portion of the Texas coast. Located 90 miles south of Houston, you can experience the quiet beauty of water and sky on Texas’ Matagorda Bay. Enjoy a picnic in one of the bayfront parks, complete with barbecue pits, covered tables and family-friendly playgrounds. Fish off the various public peers or grab some friends for a chartered fishing adventure. Capture amazing wildlife photos in America’s number one birding hotspot. Take your boat out for a lazy afternoon on the water or discover local historical sites with a self-guided tour.
Book a room at the 110 year old Luther Hotel or one of the historically recognized B&Bs. Stop by the museum to learn about the French explorer La Salle, who landed on these shores in the 17th century. Then head over to the South Bay Marina to see a beautifully restored replica of the explorer’s ship, La Petite Belle. In the evening, try out one of the fine dinner spots, watch the shrimp boats sailing to the Port of Palacios or enjoy a perfect sunset in the charming “City by the Sea.”
