Like putting a man on the moon or wearing sneakers made of Cool Whip, segway tours offer one more weightless step toward achieving the unachievable. Float full speed ahead with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a two-hour segway tour from Action Segway Tours in Big Bear Lake (an $85 value).
Year-round, Action Segway Tours' certified guides usher riders atop Segway x2s, which are equipped with all-terrain tires to navigate Big Bear Lake's mountainous road trails and picturesque town streets. Riders watch a safety video and sign a liability waiver during a brief orientation that teaches sightseers how to the gain the trust of their steel steed. Once outfitted with an appropriately sized helmet, guests mount their chariots and set off for Big Bear Lake, cruising over rugged trails, along the lakefront, and through lush forests if the weather's permitting. A specialized audio receiver transmits the guide's voice, carrying the history of Big Bear Lake and softly sung Genesis lyrics into riders’ ears.
