The ranch is conveniently located only 15 minutes from Palacios, 30 minutes to Bay City, 35 minutes from El Campo, and 25 minutes from Port Lavaca.

The property is split in two different school districts both with great scores and reputations; Palacios ISD and Tide Haven ISD. The town is the third largest shrimping port on the Texas coast earning Palacios the unofficial title of Shrimp Capital of Texas.

The Rainbow Ranch is perfect for those looking to own a cattle ranch as well as those looking for a coastal getaway.
