Today, manufacturing plants making steel, electronic products, mowing equipment, construction material, etc., provide a solid industrial base. A huge, highly efficient, gas-powered electric-generating plant came online recently. The thriving service sector includes Texas Lutheran University, a highly-rated and fast-growing liberal arts university anchoring the western side of the city. Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, a modern, well-respected hospital, adjoins a sprawling district for shopping, eating, and lodging on the eastern flank.
The beautiful Guadalupe River cuts through the city's south side. A fine public park was built alongside it beginning during the Depression years when Seguin enjoyed its oil boom. A scenic drive lined with picnic tables shadows the river for a mile or so, bordered by an 18-hole golf course. Nearby are the fairgrounds, volleyball courts and ballparks.
Both Interstate 10 and a mainline of the Union Pacific pass through the town's north side, where most manufacturing is located. The heart of the city is filled with fine old homes in traditional neighborhoods, and the city is ringed by contemporary residential developments as well. In addition, just outside the current city limits, hundreds of handsome riverfront homes sit along the shores of Lake McQueeney, Lake Placid, and Meadow Lake on the beautiful Guadalupe River.
