Have you heard about the latest mode of transport, the Segway? Unlike a car, a Segway doesn’t have a steering wheel, engine or brakes. The fact that it takes up just as much space on a sidewalk as a person means that it does not contribute to road congestion.
What’s more, these battery-powered devices can travel at speeds of up to 12.5 mph, so why not experience the fun for yourself?
Hopping on Dean Kamen’s invention with Triangle Glides offers a great way to see Raleigh-Durham. Described as “the best way to see Raleigh,” this fully narrated Segway Tour starts in Historic City Market, and tour-goers are provided with a wireless audio pack, helmets and training.
For just $45, you can enjoy one hour of gliding. Both new and historic landmarks can be seen on the tour, such as the Legislative Building Complex, North Carolina State Capitol and the Governor’s Mansion, which was built in 1981.
Children aged 14-17 must be accompanied by an adult and reservations are required. Buy your tickets online now, or call (919) 828-1988 for more information.
