Feet are notoriously hard workers, supporting the body’s weight while restraining floors so they don’t crash into ceilings. Give diligent footworkers a break with today's Groupon; for $14, you get one admission to the 30-minute Segway Experience tour at SegCity in Galveston (a $30 value). Tours leave daily at 11 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Setting walk-weary sightseers free on personal segways, SegCity leads tours destined to illuminate Houston's Gulf Coast charm. After being trained in the art of mounting, riding, and de-jockeying their metal steeds, guests set off on a half-hour jaunt along Galveston's Seawall Boulevard, inhaling the salty breeze and chatting with local mermaids. While eyes absorb lapping waves and other local sights, segways zoom down long stretches of uninterrupted sidewalk like a drag strip, cruising at up to 12 mph, the average speed of Olympic-level skipping. After dabbling in the art of segway cruising, riders can stop for a photo in front of the Rainforest Café at the culmination of their gyroscopic odysseys.
