A Segway is much like an electrically powered bicycle, but requires no pedaling, has no seating, and you self-balance as you stand upright and enjoy the views around you. If you can master a staircase, then you will have no trouble riding a Segway. It’s often referred to as fast-walking for the lazy, or those who’d rather hit the gym to get their exercise instead of speed walking from one place to another.
If you are pressed for time and fitting all your vacation destination sites into one day is not possible on foot, or if riding a cramped or smelly tour bus is a less than appealing idea, you will love the outdoor fun of riding from one fantastic site to the next.
The entire Segway movement is really just catching on; many major cities have Segway rentals with specialized tour guides trained to teach you to Segway in a few easy lessons and to safely guide visitors to local tourist and historical locations. The best Segway tours in Dallas include these locations:
- Texas Governor’s Mansion
- Historic Dealey Plaza and the Grassy Knoll — the location of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
- The Sixth Floor Museum — the location where Lee Harvey Oswald shot from.
- The Dallas Botanical Gardens—filled with carefully labeled Texas native plant species.
- Dallas Holocaust Museum
- Trinity Trails
- Panther Island Pavilion
- A fun tour of downtown Dallas both during the day and at night with the city lights all aglow.
