The diaries of Lewis and Clark are filled with cranky laments about touring the wilderness sans horseless carriage and trying to absorb sustenance from unsalted pinecones, given the startling lack of trailside street vendors. Equip yourself for urban exploration with a discoverer's eyes, a Robocop's wheels, and today's Groupon: for $30, you get a two-hour segway tour of Charlotte from Magic Carpet Glide (a $65 value).

After a 20-minute training class—included in the deal price—freshly minted segway experts depart daily in groups of two to four, leaving the heart of uptown Charlotte at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., or 5:30 p.m. and gliding through the Wells Fargo Cultural campus to the corner of Trade and Tyron. After coasting around the Panther's football stadium, intrepid explorers take to Charlotte's greenways, breezing through Frazier Park and the Irwin Creek Greenway before proceeding to the historic Fourth Ward district, where segways were just recently exonerated on witchcraft charges. On occasion, tours end with a trek through Elmwood Cemetery, although Magic Carpet Glide's experienced guides—if given prior notice—can accommodate requests for additional sightseeing stops and a capella renditions of famous sea shanties.

A tour with Magic Carpet Glide is an exciting way to spend an afternoon entertaining visiting friends or racing madly against visiting in-laws. It's also a way for locals to learn obscure facts about their city. Weekend tour dates fill up quickly, so advance reservations are recommended; see the FAQ section for age requirements and other common tour inquiries.
