Things to do near Leander, Texas

Did you know there’s an AWESOME Adventure Farm called Sweet Eats Fruit Farm located 35 Minutes East of Leander?

The City of Leander, originally called Baghdad, was established on July 17, 1882. The first settlers arrived in the area around 1845, receiving bounty land grants in exchange for service in the Texas Revolution. These settlers lived in log cabins and were frequently subjected to being attacked by local native americans that also called this area of central Texas their home. If it had not been for the many conflicts with the native americans, the area of Baghdad would probably have been settled earlier. Although, because of these frequent conflicts, the Texas Rangers were called in to protect the settlers. They constructed a building that would house up to sixty men. This was one of the first buildings of what is now Williamson County. Leander’s population today is estimated at more than 52,000 people. The Leander Independent School District has grown into the largest school district in Williamson County and is the fastest growing district in the state of Texas! With that many people in an area all looking for something to do, what better than to escape the city and head toward the best adventure farm in the area, Sweet Eats Fruit Farm!!
