Hutto is known for its mascot, the hippo. According to legend, a circus train stopped at the depot and a hippopotamus escaped to a nearby creek. After much effort, the hippo was reloaded onto the train. More than 3,000 painted, concrete hippos are displayed throughout the community.
Hutto Lake Park includes a boat dock, birdwatching platform, fishing sites and a granite trail.
