Segways are kind of like Pinterest. You see people using it, think “what’s the big deal?” and then—once you try it for yourself—develop a somewhat unhealthy obsession with it. Or at least that’s what we’ve heard; we’re totally not obsessed with Pinterest or anything. If you’ve never been on a Segway tour, it’s time you try it out! They’re a great way to cover miles of ground within just a few hours (which means more vacation time devoted to sipping cocktails by the pool). Plus, Segways are easy to maneuver (it took us about 2.5 minutes to get the hang of them the first time) and tons of fun! Here are a few country-wide Segway tours worth looking silly for:
Located within walking distance of Hotel Palomar Washington DC, a Kimpton Hotel, City Segway Tours offers 3-hour National Mall tours covering miles of patriotic ground—from the White House to Smithsonian buildings to the Lincoln Memorial.
Embark on a tour of New Orleans with City Segway Tours and explore the Mississippi waterfront, the historic Treme neighborhood and, of course, the French Quarter (if you’re daring, ask to stop at the reportedly-haunted LaLaurie Mansion).
Take a Beverly Hills Segway tour with Another Side of Los Angeles Tours and cruise 90210 in style; you’ll see famous Beverly Hills homes, Rodeo Drive and other L.A. spots (all while getting more attention than a celebrity).
