Rainbow, Texas, might be better known for the unique way it got its name than any attraction within its city limits. The Handbook of Texas states that the residents of the area 1890 got together to name the small community that had grown there. At the time of the meeting, a thunderstorm blew in, and afterward, a rainbow formed across the sky. Rainbow has since maintained its modest population, with under 100 residents. However, the recent development of nearby Dinosaur Valley State Park and the city of Glen Rose provide a reason to believe the build-up of Rainbow is imminent. The following are a few of the things to do during your vacation stay.
Dinosaur Valley State Park. The park is the premier attraction in the Glen Rose-Rainbow area. It contains some of the best-preserved dinosaur tracks in the world, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Destinations site. The park has two massive dinosaur statues, campgrounds, and the Paluxy River which are contained within the limits of the 1,500-acre park. Dinosaur Valley is a 10-minute drive from Rainbow.
Glen Rose. With a population of more than 2,000, Glen Rose is both the county seat and the largest city in Somerville County. It has earned its reputation as a tourist-friendly destination. Historic Downtown Glen Rose’s restaurants and shops, Barnard’s Art Museum, and The Creation Evidence Museum are options for a day spent in the city.
Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Fossil Rim is the first facility of its kind accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association. More than 1,000 animals openly roam the 1,700-acre site. Driving tours put visitors face-to-face with 50 different species, including ostriches, giraffes, cheetahs, rhinos, and antelope.
