Less prone to explosions, bird collisions, and painful butt-burns, the Segway has edged out the jetpack as the official ride of the 23rd century. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to practice on these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 12.5 miles per hour: for $30, you get a two-hour guided tour from The Segway Adventure (a $60 value).
After meeting at the Beachview Inn starting point and undergoing a training session that frowns upon Segway jousting, your tour group will segue on their Segways to the Ream Wilson trail and follow it to the Clearwater Memorial Causeway to spot a fantastic panorama of the Gulf of Mexico. Once you've snapped a few shots of people smiling, jumping, and balancing Segways on their noses, buzz down the corkscrew to Coachman Park before continuing to historic Harbor Oaks and the Clearwater Beach Walk. Along the way, there's a chance you'll spot manatees, dolphins, stingrays, and wild parrots. After two hours, you'll have covered seven miles worth of sunny landscapes and wildlife.
Segway tours make fun first dates, let you explore a side of the Bay Area you wouldn't have been able to reach with your car or Sherman tank, and show you what your life would have been like if you'd sprung for that cybernetic wheel-feet upgrade. Tours start from the Beachview Inn seven days a week at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
