Rainbow is southwest of Dallas/Fort Worth. A rainbow spread across the sky when area residents gathered to name their community in the late 19th Century; hence, the name. Today, Rainbow is known for the fields of wildflowers that bloom there in springtime.

Turkey is northwest of Fort Worth in the Texas Panhandle. The town was the home of Bob Wills, famed swing musician, and hosts celebrations every spring, featuring a parade, a fiddling contest, cook-offs, and dancing. The old-timey general store Lacy Dry Goods has been in business since 1927.
