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. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to practice on these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 12.5 miles per hour. For $49, you can choose between a two-hour segway tour of Beverly Hills and a two-hour segway tour of the La Brea Tar Pits from Another Side of Los Angeles Tours. Both tours depart from Another Side's headquarters on South La Cienega Boulevard.
Currently ranked number 1 on TripAdvisor's list of things to do in Los Angeles, the segway tours from Another Side of Los Angeles allow sightseers to see Beverly Hills or the La Brea Tar Pits while serenely gliding along on an electric people-mover. The Beverly Hills excursion is the most popular LA tour, gifting gliders with a peek into one of the world's most exclusive neighborhoods. After learning how to control your horseless chariot, you'll slalom in between posh pedestrians while exploring a diverse range of architecture, eateries, gardens, and esteemed boutiques. Alternately, tourists can explore the turf of prehistoric celebs at the La Brea Tar Pits. As you circumnavigate the 30,000-year-old pit, you'll pose alongside a piece of photogenic Berlin wall, explore ancient fossils from prehistoric behemoths, and meander through a slew of sculptures in Auguste Rodin's famous spread of surprisingly conversational statues.
