Looking for apartments in Leander, TX?
Leander is located northwest of Round Rock, a major hub of the Austin area. With a population of 7,596, small in comparison to such a city as nearby Austin, residents can enjoy a rural community with the shopping and night life the larger surrounding cities have to offer.
The main road through Leander is Highway 183; residents can take the highway south to I-35 South and from there, access Georgetown, Round Rock, and Austin. Commuters who do not wish to brave traffic into downtown Austin, luckily have another option: the Capital Metro Rail. Shuttling approximately 130,000 passenger trips per day, the Metro Rail begins in Leander and makes stops in Lakeline, Howard, Kramer, and a few more before ending in downtown Austin.
Leander is known more for its recreation than its shopping or nightlife, so those searching for a little more excitement will have a better chance finding it in the more populated cities of Round Rock and Austin. The local sport of choice in Leander is golf. Crystal Falls Golf Course provides golfers with an eighteen-hole course spread out over the beautiful Texas Hill Country. The hill country also provides ample opportunity for those who like to hike, bike, or kayak.
