Like rocket packs powered by children's letters to Santa, traveling by segway combines futuristic efficiency with youthful whimsy. Check off another wish-list entry with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a guided Segway tour of South Point from Bike and Roll Miami (a $49 value). Tours launch at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., 6 p.m. from Bike and Roll's Miami Beach hub daily, weather permitting.
After a 20-minute briefing on the ins, outs, and favorite foods of Segway steeds, you'll buzz through South Pointe's elegant beachfront pastels during a relaxing two-hour tour. The beauty of the area's early 20th century art deco architecture has been largely preserved thanks to the National Register of Historic Places, allowing wheeled wanderers and fact-filled guides to navigate the district's pristine façades, cultural museums, and trendy shops without fears of inauthentic experiences or encountering roving gangs of post-modern redecorators.
Bike and Roll
Bike and Roll equips locals and tourists with eco-friendly transportation to explore the Magic City. Mounted on roving Segways and pointing out historical facts as they ride, guides swing tourists past such iconic locations as the Miami River, the eclectic Miami Beach Architectural District, and South Pointe Park at sunset. In addition to daily tours, Bike and Roll offers rentals of Trek bicycles for recreation or transportation and in-line skates for carving figure eights into the city's asphalt ice rinks.
