Raleigh, NC, June 18, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Fourth of July weekend is coming up soon, and if you're looking for a fun and memorable way to entertain friends and family - and see the sights of downtown Raleigh - one of the most unique options is to take a guided Segway tour of our Capital City.
Since 2008, Triangle Segway’s popular Segway tours have given thousands in the Triangle their first taste of riding a two-wheeled self-balancing, all-electric Segway, as well as introduced many to Raleigh’s old and new downtown landmarks and history.
“Our guided Segway tours highlight the interesting history, landmarks and new developments in downtown Raleigh,” says Todd Masinter, who owns Triangle Segway. “We offer several different routes, including tours through historic Oakwood. Our newest tour explores the North Carolina State University campus.”
The environmentally friendly, self-balancing Segway gets up to 24 miles on a single battery charge – the equivalent of 480 city blocks – and gives consumers a fun and efficient way to get around town.
“Taking one of our guided tours is a great way to experience a Segway and see the sights of downtown Raleigh at the same time. No matter how many times you may have walked or driven our tour routes, you’ll be seeing the area in a whole new way as you glide it on a Segway,” says Masinter.
Points of interest include the North Carolina State Capitol building, the Queen-Anne-style Governor's Mansion, Oakwood Cemetery, and the old and new developments on Fayetteville Street - downtown's "Main Street."
Triangle Segway is the only authorized Segway dealer and Segway tour operator in the Triangle. Their showroom offers the latest Segway models and accessories, and is also the starting point for their popular downtown Raleigh Segway tours, which are fully narrated and highlight Raleigh’s points of interest and historic landmarks.
