Visit Tallahassee staff joined me on a test run last Friday morning. We had a full tour of seven Segways. Only one of the guests had EVER been on Segway before but after a few minutes in our indoor training area we were all ready hit the streets. Our first stop was just a few blocks down at the new FAMU extension near Van Buren and Adams Street which is approximately where the new Cascades pedestrian bridge will join in. We then made our way down the new wide sidewalk to Gaines Street and Railroad Avenue, and Doak Campbell Stadium. Continuing under the beautiful canopy of oaks on the Legacy Walk at FSU all the way to Westcott Hall. Explored some new sidewalks that led us back to Gaines Street and then back to the launch sight on South Monroe Street. Everyone really seemed to have a great time. Received lots of good feedback and suggestions. (So many good ideas!) Thanks to Lauren and all the great people at Visit Tallahassee!
We're proud to offer a new tour this week, we call it the West Side Glide. It's an exhilirating, fast paced tour of the west side of town for those who like the thrill of riding a Segway without stopping to talk and take pictures. You'll be amazed how far you'll roam, how fast and most of all how much FUN! Join us for this 45 minute jaunt and find out how fun riding a Segway can be!
Segway Tickets are just $39*
Our two seat scooter is available for those who prefer to sit or bring children along-- and don't worry, it'll keep up!

Our imaginations ran wild when we thought about bringing Segway technology to Tallahassee. All the places that seem too hot or too hilly to explore suddenly became inviting. I look forward to touring historic Tallahassee, all the places I've driven by so many times, but never explored. The downtown area is just teaming with history and culture. And while touring on a Segway PT, parking certainly won't be an issue.
I love exploring nature too and I knew it would be a no-brainer to travel the St. Marks bike trail, it's so smooth and nice. But I've always been curious about those trails that run off into the palmetto bushes near the lighthouse. They're always so nicely maintained, but I never see anyone on them. We plan to add tours on the Segway X2 all terrain transporter in the future-- then even more adventures will be possible!
