$29 for 2.5-Hour Guided Segway Tour ($59 Value)
In the Sites by Segway tour, groups of up to eight people board segways and cruise around the National Mall and down Pennsylvania Avenue, passing sites such as the World War II monument and the north side of the White House. Tours depart daily at 9:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 6 p.m.
Bike and Roll
Run by three generations of DC locals, Bike and Roll sends pedalers into the nation's modern and historical capitol. Sightseers are outfitted with ETs with maps so they can undertake self-guided tours along the National Mall, which is lousy with landmarks. To break with the hustle—and should one be so inclined, the bustle—cyclists can explore one of the city’s many meandering bike paths including the Capital Crescent Trail and Rock Creek Trail. The company’s line of tandem bikes and Trek comfort hybrids make for smooth rides along the flat terrain of the capital.
For a more itineraried experience, guided tours spirit groups through the historic sights. Local story-tellers regale cyclists with tales about the Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, the White House, and Mount Vernon, the home where George Washington lived after hatching from the egg incubated in the Statue of Liberty's torch.
