Maneuvering a scooter requires only simple steering skills, passable balance, and the ability to ramp over sleeping hobos. Catch some air with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a 24-hour scooter rental, including helmet rental and insurance, from Big Easy Scooters (a $90 value).
Big Easy Scooters outfits pedestrians with well-wheeled vehicles from Kymco, Genuine, and other brands for 24 hours of smooth sightseeing and thrilling motoring. After renters select a helmet and familiarize themselves with their new rides, they can throttle off at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour as they explore New Orleans' historic downtown sights. Big Easy Scooters outfits riders with a noggin case and insurance for worry-free scooting about town, but aspiring motorists should also arrive with a valid driver's license and a major credit card, as well as sunglasses or another form of eye protection, such as a welder's mask or a diving bell.
