Feet are notoriously hard workers, supporting the body’s weight while restraining floors so they don’t crash into ceilings. Give diligent footworkers a break with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a two-hour segway tour of St. Petersburg from Magic Carpet Glide (a $65 value). Year-round tours are offered three times daily, seven days a week.
Magic Carpet Glide sends groups coasting along St. Petersburg’s scenic waterfront astride auto-balancing segways on two-hour guided tours. After introducing the segway's controls, knowledgeable guides shepherd packs of customers past popular destinations, beginning with carefree glides along the scenic pier, which stretches into Tampa Bay and serves as a gathering spot for shoppers, anglers, and pelicans posing as sidewalk vendors. From there, tours breeze off to North Straub Park, which teems with leathery-leaved banyan trees, and nearby Albert Whitted Airport, the push-off point for the first commercial aircraft’s ascent. Spins past the new Dalí Museum leave watches dripping off of wrists as tours conclude with peeks at the Mediterranean Revival–style Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club and St. Pete’s sun-soaked marinas.
Accessible to all ability levels, Magic Carpet Glide tours surprise visitors and locals alike with little-known facts about the area and secret sights made visible only by onboard decloaking devices. Tour times vary based on the sun’s schedule, with the last trip of the day commencing at sunset. See the tour’s FAQ section for answers to common inquiries, including recommended ages and rain policies.
