Zippiest Way to Get Around

Segway Tours

Nerd alert! There they go, the lot of 'em, whizzzzzzing past the traditional pedestrian pace with their little helmets and big wheels. And they're always in a cluster! The tech is so new, and the first impression so much a head-turner that they are wise to honor the instinct to travel in packs. (We could imagine the too-cool-for-school scooter crowd wanting to slap them silly.) But you can't really accuse them of herd mentality. What they are riding stands out like a fuel-injected funny car at the Belmont Stakes. Ahhhhh, the brave and noble self-balancing eco-friendly Segwayers: Tourists, newbies, the curious, pioneers, all, seeing our town from a new vantage point on two wheels, standing tall.
