Segway Tours..Chicago and other cities.

Today, my husband signed us up for Segway Tours Chicago along the lakefront. He found a deal on Yelp. It is near 30 F degrees tops today in Chicago, and I knew along Lake Michigan, the winds coming off the lake would be brutal.

I wore two pairs of long underwear, ski pants, turtleneck, wool sweater, winter coat, gloves, hat and of course, they provide the bike head gear.

It was a 3 hour tour. It was fabulous! The two wheeled whachtamathings, "Segways", are really powerful! I still don't understand how we could use the sidewalk, yet bikers have to use the street... We were flying past the bikers.

My feet were frozen, and the tour guide had to help me off, since I couldnt feel my feet. I am just suggesting if someone is seeing their city, or a new city, as a tourist, there is NO WAY you can cover the ground on foot sightseeing, like you can on one of these two wheeled Segways. It was alot of fun! PS: If you know how to ride horses, and balance, and relax- you will LOVE IT! Zoooom...

Sounds fun! Think I'll wait til it's a little warmer again though!

I wanted to do that when we were in San Diego. Groupon had a fantastic deal. We didn't have enough time though. Glad you had fun even if your feet froze... Ouch!

We did this on a short visit to San Antonio.

Segways are fun! Once I got the idea of how to control it I was off like a bat out of hell!
