The diaries of Lewis and Clark are filled with cantankerous laments about having to tour the wilderness by foot and the startling lack of trailside fast-food options. Equip yourself with a discoverer's eyes and a Robocop's wheels with today's Groupon: for $21, you get a Town & Country segway tour of historic Jim Thorpe from Pocono Segway Tours in Jim Thorpe (a $44.95 value).
Cradled in the forested furloughs of the Pennsylvanian mountains, Pocono Segway Tours leads scooters through the town of Jim Thorpe and its quaint charms. Historically attuned tourists stand astride gyroscopically stabilized steeds for a 90-minute journey along the vintage streets, reaping a harvest of information from nostalgia fountains and memory hydrants. After leaving the picturesque avenues of Jim Thorpe, a three-mile gamesome glide ends excursions on a high note with serene views along wooded paths to the top of Flagstaff Mountain. Before Memorial Day, tours are only available on weekends, extending to seven days a week at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. after the holiday. Tours operate out of the Pocono Bike Shop, across the street from the train station.
Pocono Segway Tours
The staff of Pocono Segway Tours leads groups of up to 5 sightseers on segway-propelled escapades through the scenic Split Rock Resort in the Pocono Mountains. A battery-powered personal transporter, the segway allows recreationalists of all shapes and sizes to navigate the gyroscopic machine along wooded paths and roadways while taking in the area's picturesque vistas during guided, multimile excursions.
