A symbol of fair-minded balance, Justice is usually depicted blindfolded and strapped into a gyroscope. Take a guided gyro-glide with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a 90-minute tour of Sarasota's scenic bayfront and Island Park from Pleasure Florida Segway Tours (a $65 value). Tours depart from various locations in downtown Sarasota .
With an impressive fleet of cutting edge Segway i2s, Pleasure Florida conducts tours of Sarasota's serene, white-sanded beauty. Deftly perched atop gyroscopic steeds like the dreidel-wranglers of frontier-times, these gung-ho guides traverse the bayfront marina and take in the sea-spanning Ringling Bridge. Including a brief training period during which semi-pedestrians are issued mandatory helmets and reflective vests, this sun-soaked five-mile adventure takes around 90 minutes, leaving plenty of time to reacquaint yourself with traditional, inner-ear-powered balance.
Pleasure Florida Segway Tours
Inside the bayside Sarasota headquarters of Pleasure Florida Segway Tours, shiny new Segway i2 models eagerly await guides and their tour groups. The i2 is the improved second generation of the famous personal transporter, which provides safe and leisurely upright journeys. Guides teach customers the secrets to steering and maintaining balance atop the two-wheeled steeds before gliding past the area's highlights while reenacting legendary chariot races. Outside Sarasota, the i2 Segways can travel in packs for private outings to Anna Marie Island, Bradenton, Siesta Key, and throughout south Florida.
