City By The Sea
Palacios is a certified Texas Film Friendly Community with a beauty worth capturing on video. Several film productions have completed projects in Palacios.
What draws people to a small resort town like Palacios, Texas? Perhaps it’s because it remains a hidden gem, the last undeveloped area of the Texas coast. Or the attractive coastline bounded by a lighted seawall and parks system featuring three massive fishing piers. Could the draw be the modern boat launch sites allowing free access to the beautiful Tres Palacios and Matagorda Bays? Maybe it’s the unique bird watching opportunities, since the area leads the annual Audubon bird count each year. Or is it the small-town laid-back pace of life enjoyed by its friendly citizens?
Whatever the reason, folks leave the urban crowds and city bustle behind to experience the quiet beauty of the water and sky on Matagorda Bay. They enjoy picnics in the Bayfront parks, complete with barbecue pits, covered tables and playgrounds. They fish off the free public peers or grab some friends for chartered fishing adventures. They capture amazing wildlife photos in America’s number one birding hotspot. And they enjoy lazy afternoons boating on the water.
