What You'll Get
Lewis and Clark were a frownful bunch because they were forced to tour the brimbles and brambles of the wilderness by foot. Today's Groupon lets you discover new land with a Robocop's wheels at Segway of Long Beach. For $35, you get a guided, two-hour trek down the waterfront. Gain an understanding for modern technology while seeing the historic sights and learning the historic tidbits that built Long Beach from its youth as a modest little beach to an adult beach with broad sand shoulders.
The length of Long Beach is perfectly suited for a Segway tour. Whether you're gripped by the spirit of exploration or have always wondered what it’s like to outrun gulls on an electric-powered and emission-free Segway i2, this guided journey will satisfy your cravings. Friendly and knowledgeable guides lead you through a quick training session so you can glide with confidence. While you won't drop from the balanced safety of your vehicle, your jaw and elbows may as you witness the stunning landscape of a coast peppered by such attractions as the Queen Mary, the Lighthouse for Sight, Rainbow Harbor, Four Oil Islands, Rainbow Lagoon, Aquarium of the Pacific, and many more.
A rolling saunter through downtown will load your wonderment with facts on local landmarks and the fascinating history that developed the city over time. Tours run on Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Surpass the outdated mode of walking as you careen over bridges, around lagoons, and along the ocean like a modern day land skiffer.
