Yes, those are hot pink (fake) sheep perched on the roof of the Highlandler Hotel, a unique lodging option situated in Austin's Boulevard District. This fun, quirky hotel encourages guests to take selfies with the vibrantly colored mascots, in between using the fitness room and relaxing in one of the property's 84 guest rooms, each with a 40-inch LED television and complimentary Wi-Fi. There's Car2Go access onsite in case you need to head downtown—though if you stay in the area, you're a short jaunt from hot spots like the new AFS Cinema, Kick Butt Coffee and the Brewtorium.
