There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the area around South Carolina’s fastest-growing urban area — Greenville.
Riding on a Segway isn’t difficult, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one. This tour begins in downtown Greenville with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weight between 100 and 300 pounds to participate.
With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.
Glide down the Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail, a 20-mile-long, multi-use greenway system that runs along the Reedy River, connecting Greenville County with schools, parks and local businesses. The trail follows the bed of a former railroad that had been nicknamed after the indigenous swamp rabbit.
Wind through the streets and discover what makes the city unique, with ongoing commentary about the past and present of this growing region — and a few secrets that even some of the locals don’t know about. Explore everything from the booming business district to the lush parks and greenways — the territory that has made Greenville one of CNN Money’s “Top 10 Fastest Growing Cities in the US.”
This Greenville Segway adventure concludes back at its starting point in downtown Greenville.
