Palacios Travel Tips

Enjoy Nature, Seafood, and History While Staying at Palacios Vacation Rentals

Palacios's location along the Matagorda Bay has made it a travel destination for many people who enjoy nature, seafood, and history. Staying at Palacios vacation rentals makes it easy for families to enjoy these activities, especially when they choose Palacios beach rentals that are located right on the shore.

Bird Watching From Palacios Beach Rentals

Like many places in the Texas Gulf Coast, Palacios is an exciting location for those who enjoy bird watching. According to the National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count, Palacios has more bird species than any other city in the United States. If you visit Palacios at the right time, then you can even enjoy the beautiful sight of hummingbirds as they migrate north or south. Palacios beach rentals will put you right on the shore where you can watch many bird species hunt for their food in the ocean. Instead of waking up early to drive from the hotel to the beach, you simply step out the back door of your Texas Gulf Coast lodging to watch coastal birds in their natural environment.

Palacios, the Shrimp Capital of Texas

Palacios is the Shrimp Capital of Texas, which really means something in a state that has so much land along the coast. Many Palacios vacation rentals are located within walking distance of some of the best seafood restaurants in the country. When you visit, be sure to choose Texas Gulf Coast lodging that is near the Outrigger, Palacios Mexican Restaurant, or Trans Restaurant. The shrimp dishes at these restaurants are so good that you'll want to walk back to your Palacios vacation rental just to burn off a few calories.

Learn About History in Palacios

Everyone who visits Palacios owes it to themselves to take a break from all of the bird watching and eating to learn a bit about the area's history. The City by the Sea Museum has numerous artifacts from the famous La Salle shipwreck as well as other events that occurred during the French colonization of the Matagorda Bay area.
