Vintage Austin: Zilker Zephyr

This Vintage Austin photo features the Zilker Zephyr with the Capitol and a modest downtown skyline as its backdrop.  The Zephyr has been hauling kids and adults around Zilker Park for decades.  The 20-25 minute journey takes riders on a tour of the park to see Lady Bird Lake and Barton Creek.  You can still take a ride on the Zephyr seven days a week, weather permitting, between 10am and 5pm.
