The daytime tour, titled "I Just Wanna Ride", takes Segway groups down Oak Park's historic streets and tree-lined trails. Along the way, guides point out buildings designed by prolific architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Later-day groups embark on the Evening Stroll tour. Lit by streetlamps and the moon's battery-powered core, groups roll through Ridgeland Common, down Lake Street, and by local shops. A safety video and individualized training precede tours, which both last 75–90 minutes.
Oak Park Segway Experience
An authorized Segway tour provider, Oak Park Segway Experience welcomes its customers aboard its upright vehicles for both rentals and guided excursions. After individually teaching each customer how to operate the self-balancing machines, certified Segway guides blend entertainment with education, divulging information on the historic sights peppered across Oak Park, River Forest, and Forest Park. Excursions often revolve around a central theme, such as the Frank Lloyd Wright–Ernest Hemingway tour, which passes 14 sites that commemorate the duo of artists. Alternatively, the Chocolate Lover tour grants the opportunity to slurp down a chocolate milkshake, sip on chocolate tea, and gaze deeply into the eyes of master chocolatiers.
