Contrary to popular belief, Segways are much safer than cars, which collide with chalk drawings of trees every time you drive them on the sidewalk. Explore Florida in safety and style with today's Groupon: for $21, you get a one-hour Segway tour of Panama City Beach from Golf Coast Gliders (a $43 value). Tours run Thursday–Sunday at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.
Gulf Coast Gliders whisks the walking-weary away on guided tours of Florida's sandy beaches and charming attractions via ultraefficient Segways. Segway newbies start with a 30-minute training session to learn emergency stops, proper mounting and dismounting of the Segway, and how to make turn signals using a complicated system of nautical flags and sparklers. Then, the five-person tour takes riders on a two-wheeled battery-powered quest through Pier Park and Aaron Bessant Park, making stops at Russell-Fields Pier and Gulf World.
Gulf Coast Gliders recommends that all two-wheeling adventurers wear comfortable clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses, and sneakers rather than flip-flops. Tours will go on despite light rain, so rough riders should bring a raincoat, poncho, or weather-controlling machine. Arrive 10–15 minutes prior to the tour time to snag your headgear of choice and fill out a liability waiver.
