Segway tours represent another step toward the inevitable fusion of man, machine, and commentary track. Give in to technological destiny with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a one-hour guided segway tour of White River State Park from Segway of Indiana, LLC (a $45 value). Tours depart daily at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. with evening tours available on occasion.
The docents at Segway of Indiana reveal downtown Indianapolis' multitudinous sights and attractions to segway-mounted travelers during one-hour guided tours. Groups of up to six participants strap on helmets and undertake a segway orientation to get acclimated to maneuvering the two-wheeled vehicles, which glide like moonwalking figure skaters. Tour groups then rove across the 250-acre White River State Park, admiring outdoor art and the hundreds of plants flourishing at the 3.3-acre White River Gardens. Raconteur guides regale tour-takers with historical tidbits as the group passes the Indiana State Museum, the NCAA Hall of Champions, and the cobwebbed XFL Hall of Champions. The tour wraps up with a jaunt along the picturesque downtown waterfront, where travelers can admire monuments and memorials along the way.
