The experienced tour guides at Segway of Scottsdale lead fleets of two-wheelers through one of two scenic Arizona cities during an extensive schedule of rides. Guests gear up for either of the 90-minute tours by hopping aboard a segway, whose self-balancing technology allows riders to tilt handlebars gently for turns or quickly for back flips. Each session begins with a 30-minute orientation, followed by a narrated jaunt past the towering opulence of the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix or around the city-flanked oasis of Tempe Town Lake. During the summer months, groups traverse the town's bridges and boulevards at dusk, stopping by landmarks such as Arizona State University and Sun Devil Stadium, whose eponymous student-athletes practice under solar-powered stadium lights to escape the chill of night. The Old Town Scottsdale Tour in particular is noted for its historic charm. Adventurousness guests can explore that charming area, including the Waterfront Main Street, and the Civic Center, glowing at night on the City Lights Tour.

Long before the founding of the smoke shop that now bears his name, Owl Ear was a Native American tribal chief and calendar keeper, tasked with memorizing important stories in his tribe’s history. Located on the same land where the chief's tales were originally played out, Owl Ear Smoke Shop is a place where new stories are told as customers relax in the leather-appointed lounge and enjoy aromatic puffs of smoke from domestic and imported cigars. Scores of stogies are stocked in the shop's walk-in humidor, which protects their vast supply of cigars and cigarettes from the dry air and neighborhood water-balloon fights.
