it's cabin time™ in Seguin
Seguin, Texas is a historical gem located on the banks of the Guadalupe River. The historic downtown is a hot spot for dining, nightlife, and shopping. Nature lovers, thrill-seekers, foodies, and history buffs will all feel right at home while staying in a cabin in this scenic Texas town.
Seguin is one of the oldest towns in Texas. Seguin celebrates its history with a variety of incredible museums and buildings on the national historic registry. While exploring downtown Seguin, you can still find the hand-pressed brick buildings that were built in the 1840s. Visit Texas Mead Works to get a taste of the 19th century by trying mead, the oldest known alcoholic beverage.
Seguin’s favorite museums include: Pioneer Flight Museum (Exhibiting pre- WWII memorabilia and aircraft); Sebastopol House Historic Site (A pre-civil war, greek revival mansion); Seguin Heritage Museum (Exhibiting Seguin photographs, history, and memorabilia); Texas Agricultural Education and Heritage Center (Explore what Texas frontier life was like in the 19th century); and Wilson Pottery Museum (Exhibiting pottery from one of the first business in Texas owned by freed slaves).
Don’t miss out on seeing the World’s Largest Pecan! The five-foot-long, two-and-a-half-foot wide pecan sits outside the historic city hall and pays homage to Seguin’s history with pecan farming. It only makes sense that this pecan city would also be home to the Paps Pecan House and Nutcracker Museum which houses about 8,000 nutcrackers from all over the world. Pick up some pecans in the shop to snack during your stay in your Seguin Cabin.
Beyond its historical and quaint downtown life, Seguin has plenty of outdoor recreation to offer. Rent a tiki hut on Son’s Island, and spend the day kayaking, walking on the waterfront wooden walkways, fishing, and swimming. Hang out at Max Starcke Park, a sprawling park on the banks of the Guadalupe River with an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, walking trails, and a fun playground called Kid’s Kingdom Playscape. The park also has two kayak launches.
If you are aching for more of an adrenaline rush visit ZDT’s Amusement Park. This family-owned amusement park has roller coasters, go-karts, climbing walls, a water park, and more.
