Crate Escape owes its existence to a 10-year-old jack russell terrier named Ernestine Hastings. Ernestine's owners, Bradley and Stephanie, loved their pooch so much that they decided to spread this affection to other dogs by opening a spacious boarding and grooming facility. Pet owners can drop off their furry friends for daycare or overnight boarding services, letting pups gambol about in a 17,000-square-foot play space. Groomers tackle matted fur and tails caked in cake by scrubbing coats with hypoallergenic shampoo.

The future has arrived and it's gliding in at a comfortable 12.5 mph. Introducing the Segway, a brand new transportation device that was publicly released in 2002. Pretty soon streets, sidewalks, and sidewalk cafes will be blessed with the presence of these two-wheel wonders, forever altering human life. Picture this, you need a wide-brimmed western hat to wear to Cowboy Formal 2009: Git Yer Grind On, but your calves hurt from morning calisthenics. Hopeless? Not with a Segway.

The Segway will also revolutionize the sports world. Once football players adopt the Segway, their drastically less violent collisions will become completely unwatchable. The NBA will witness a renaissance of dunkless basketball, prompting Jud Buechler to come out of retirement and dominate the game for the next 27 years. Baseball will remain largely unchanged. Segway will even impact the medical community. Veterinary medicine will become so incredibly advanced that injured racehorses will be given a second chance to compete.

If this future sounds interesting, or the Segway sounds like something you want to become familiar with in case it turns evil in 2014, then read on to learn how Boston Gliders Segway Adventures will teach you how to use the transportation machine of the future.

Interested in doing last week's #1 Thing To Do in Boston and this week's #2 Thing To Do in Boston, according to TripAdvisor? Of course you are. Today's Groupon is a one-hour Boston Gliders Segway adventure through the city for only $30 (half off the $60 value). Boston Gliders, located at 36 Warren St. in Charlestown, is great for Bostonians looking to show off their city to out-of-towners or for long-time city dwellers in need of a fresh perspective. Boston Gliders operates approximately 8 to 10 adventures per day, with 4 to 6 people per group, so make sure to sign up to reserve a spot.

Here's a detailed breakdown of the adventure:

Leave from Faneuil Hall and head straight for the Waterfront. Spend 10-15 minutes soaking up the salty sea air and go toward Middle Park, over the Big Dig, and to the Bamboo Forest. China Town comes next, followed by the Theater District and Boston Commons. Spend some time at the Capitol Building before heading toward Beacon Hill and Washington Street (big shopping district). On your way back to Faneuil Hall, you'll stop by the Holocaust Museum. The end.

TripAdvisor reviewers are enamored with Boston Gliders, doling out a near-perfect 5.5 out of 6 owl eyes. Here's what they said:

  • "We saw more in the couple hours on the gliders than we ever would have by just trying to see the city ourselves. Anyone visiting Boston should definitely make this part of their trip!" – MissAliBaba
  • "My wife and I had a great time riding segways for the first time in Boston. The prep video can make you nervous, but the ride was fantastic. The machine becomes part of you in just a few minutes." – jwgrenning
  • "We saw more in 2 hours than we have seen in the past 20 years! The only way to get around the city and see the sights – and have a blast in the process!" – griz317

The YMCA keeps residents healthy and engaged in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the country, but it traces its American origins to the streets of 19th-century Boston. Here, Thomas Valentine Sullivan carried on the mission started in London by George Williams: providing affordable recreation and residence to young men from cities and country towns alike. Over the last century and change, the organization's mission changed to keep pace with the evolving times; today, the YMCA of Greater Boston welcomes anyone interested in furthering the causes of "youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility."

This modern mission combines the Y's signature programming with new initiatives designed to keep citizens one step ahead of an ever-changing world. Members stay fit and active with everything from organized sports and fitness classes to lifeguard, CPR, and first aid lessons. But the Y's developmental programs go far beyond bodily strength; their enrichment and leadership courses equip youths with the confidence needed to take charge in their everyday lives, and ESL classes help newcomers to English embark on the next step of their linguistic lives.
