FastPark Longhorns

C’mon and visit the “Music Mecca of the World”, where we like to keep things weird: Austin, Texas.

From one street corner to the next, Austin is one of the best known and kept secrets of the Western Hemisphere, so the story goes.

There’s something under the sun for everyone in Austin.  Many discover Austin because of its world-class music scene, booming tech community, Formula One racing, festivals and museums galore, University of Texas, and much more.

However, one of its best-kept attractions is quietly tucked away on the northwest side of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA).

Between all the airport hustle and bustle sits 74 acres that is home to not only an Austin icon, but a Texas icon: the longhorn.

Where can you see longhorn cattle in Austin, Texas?

There tucked away eastwardly adjacent to Fast Park & Relax — an off-site airport parking company, just north of Highway 71, are cattle and steer with massive horns in tow.

How massive you ask? Try 65-70 inches worth of horns on average in length for the viewing pleasure of the young, old, and everyone in between.

If you’ve never used Fast Park & Relax, then you may have not ever taken notice of this hidden gem and treasure deep in the heart of Texas’ capital.

Since Fast Park & Relax donated the 74-acre land and partnered with Del Valle High School Future Farmers of America in 2008, longhorns have greeted and brought smiles to countless faces traveling to and from Austin. 

In addition, this unlikely partnership has affords DVHS FFA students exposure to experience the necessary knowledge and hand-on application to raise, breed, and oversee all the intricacies of Texas longhorns in a real-life agricultural and ranch setting.

So the next time you travel to or from ABIA, add 15-20 minutes of extra travel time to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the lovable Texas longhorns over at 2300 Spirit of Texas Drive.

 Y’all come on out and see us now, ya hear? 🤠
