The year-round tours take place three times daily, seven days a week, and include a brief 20-minute introduction to the Segway’s auto-balancing features. The tour of Tampa takes off to trace Tampa Bay's coastline, zip through the longest uninterrupted sidewalk on the planet, and flit past where the bay merges with the Hillsborough River. Tours swing by beloved Tampa landmarks such as the Gasparilla pirate ship on their way to Harbour Island, where tour-goers can snap pictures of downtown Tampa's skyline.
Beginning downtown, the St. Petersburg tour commences with carefree glides toward the waterfront area and along the pier—which stretches into Tampa Bay and serves as a gathering spot for shoppers, anglers, and pelicans posing as sidewalk vendors. From there, tours breeze through the leathery-leaved banyan trees of North Straub Park, whisk past the new Salvador Dali Museum, and take a peek at the Mediterranean Revival–styled Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club.
