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 gives you a discoverer's eyes with a Robocop's wheels through Segway Nation. For $35, you get to choose either the Ride It Tour or the Executive Tour (up to an $85 value; prices fluctuate depending on season).
The 2.5-hour Executive Tour, Segway Nation's most popular wheelromp, explores the city's rich culture past, present, and future, when everyone will be riding legally mandated Segways. You'll cruise through bustling Sixth Street, breeze by historic landmarks, and see the city's newest skyscrapers. (Note: The mechanism on the Segway that allows it to travel up the side of buildings has been disabled.)
The 1.5-hour Ride It Tour is designed for those more interested in taking a Segway out for a spin. Whir past the Capitol Grounds, downtown, and Congress Street Bridge for photo ops. A 30-minute finale lets you loose to play with the Segway, whether it's catch with a football or a wheeled version of red rover.
When sensor technology for humanoid robots becomes advanced enough to systematically eliminate human life, real human beings will have an 8 mph head start on their Segways. Don't worry about getting the hang of your Seg-legs, since each Segway is equipped with high-speed microprocessors, solid-state gyroscopes, and powerful electric motors that keep you balanced. Consult the schedule online and call to book your adventure at least a week ahead of time.
