Less prone to explosions, bird collisions, and painful butt burns, the segway has edged out the jetpack as the official ride of the 23rd century. Practice on these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 12.5 miles per hour with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 2.5-hour segway tour of the city and the bay from Another Side of San Diego Tours (a $149 value). Tours depart from Another Side's headquarters at 300 G Street.
Another Side of San Diego’s segway tours allow sightseers to see city attractions while serenely gliding along on an electric people-mover. After sightseers learn the controls of their vertical vehicle, they will venture out into the historic Gaslamp District and along the Embarcadero at the Bay Front. As they zip along, they’ll be showered with interesting and historical facts about San Diego by a knowledgeable and energetic tour guide, equipped with insider knowledge of the city’s little-known nooks and password-guarded crannies. Guides will glide smoothly from one site to another, imparting tidbits about the USS Midway, the Unconditional Surrender Statue, and Tuna Pier, which is tastefully sandwiched between boats made of rye bread.
