Feet are notriously hard workers, supporting the body’s weight while restraining floors so they don’t crash into ceilings. Give diligent footworkers a break with this Groupon.
$30 for Two-Hour Segway City Tour ($65 Value)
Two-hour tours coast along the Queen City’s historic sites and scenic streetscapes. After a brief introduction to the segway’s auto-balancing features, guides begin tours in uptown with the Wells Fargo Cultural Campus. Sightseers continue through the heart of downtown to view the bustling business area before breezing past the football stadium and into the verdant stretches of Frazier Park and Irwin Creek Greenway. Gliders finally hit the Fourth Ward district and the quiet pathways of Elmwood Cemetery.
