Do You Segway?

Yesterday I went on a one hour segway tour of the Boston waterfront with (and thanks to) my sister- Karen, her husband-Dave, my brother-Tommy and his fiance-Jenn.


5 giddy, giggling adults cruising the sidewalks of Boston on segways. Who knew adults could have so much fun?

We arrived at Boston Gliders early so we could catch the info video and learn how to not fall off the segway. The video was simply hysterical. I don't think it was suppose to be so funny, but the guy had a wicked Boston accent and was using Boston references throughout. The main point was to be relaxed while on the segway or "get the hell off". Then we hit the sidewalk to try the gems out. I could do a full cirlce like an ice skater in no time!

Captain Jim-Bo was our tour guide. He was all about having a good time on the segs (yeah, I am that cool that I can now call them that) and he threw in a little history of the waterfront. I handed over my camera to the Segway tour caboose and he took shots while we rode. A helmet cam would have been hysterical. (Next time). Captain Jim had a mic hooked up and we all had receivers and an earplug so we would hear him while we rode.

I couldn't do the trip justice with just a few pictures, so I made you a video. Yeah, I am nice like that.
Keep in mind that it was freezing and windy yesterday. That is why we look like eskimos.

How fun! I want to do that sometime! Can I ask how much it costs to rent those?

Great video...perfect song for it. :)

OMG! I have such crazy and cute children! You were born to be wild! That looked like such a good time even though you were bundled up like Eskimos! Probably a good thing you weren't in shorts and t-shirts. Great birthday present for Sue and Dave and fun for Karen, Tommmy and Jenn.

Kate, We had Groupons, but I think the cost was around $60? You can check on the website. Now that we are "experienced" we can go in and rent them for the day and take them out on our own! Oh boy!!!

That looks wicked fun! (said with a Boston accent) I work in town and I've seen the Segway tours. I'm going to have to try that.
