Texas has around ten different vegetation areas, and since Leander is in the heart of Texas, there is a little bit of everything in the city. While in Leander, you can explore wonderful prairies, savannahs, and the dry rocky plains.
The town itself is about 200 years old and it was an important railroad location. There are lots of great amenities to explore, and sights to see, such as the 10,000-year-old skeleton, which was found next to Leander. In honor of the town, the archeologists named the young woman’s skeleton Leanderthal Lady.

The nearby Texas Hill Country has beautiful natural features, hiking trails, and stunning vistas, so if you like to explore the outdoors, that’s the place for you.
Visit Sandy Creek Park which is a gorgeous rocky, hilly park on the shores of Lake Travis. It’s a great area to go walking or swimming. You can also fish in the lake and enjoy a nice little picnic in the designated areas. Locals say it's a hidden gem as not too many people know about it.
And if you want to spend more time by the water, you can go paddle boarding, surfing or jet skiing at nearby Volente Beach.
Moreover, the area offers a great variety of interesting tours such as the Inner Space Caverns, which is a deep, five-mile-long cave. It was only discovered 50 years ago and they had to drill a hole into the core to access the caves. On site you can learn more about the area’s geology.
Meanwhile, Austin is only 10 miles away from Leander, so you can access ‘big city’ amenities there. Why not visit the Austin Aquarium while you’re at it? It’s a fun place for children and adults alike.
