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, these guided journeys 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 Long Beach peppered by such attractions as the Queen Mary, the Lighthouse for Sight, and Rainbow Harbor, or blaze a balanced trail along the sandy sidelines of Santa Monica and the Venice Beach boardwalk.
Each rolling saunter will load your wonderment with facts on local landmarks and the fascinating history that developed the areas over time. Tours run daily from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. at both locations, although they are subject to the whims of availability and mercurial Norse deities, so call ahead to make your reservation to surpass the outdated mode of walking as you careen over bridges, around lagoons, and along the ocean like a modern-day land-skiffer.
