There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the nation’s former capital city of Annapolis in Maryland.
Riding on a Segway isn’t difficult, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one. This tour begins in central Annapolis with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weigh between 70 and 270 pounds to participate.
With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.
Follow the guide past historical sites like the Paca House and Garden, an 18th-century Georgian mansion named after William Paca, a three-term governor of Maryland and one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Cruise past the Maryland State House, the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use, dating back to 1772; the world-renowned St. John’s College, the alma mater of Francis Scott Key; and the Brice House, one of the largest and most elegant of Annapolis's historic mansions, built by James Brice, (the former mayor of Annapolis).
Other sites include the Chase-Lloyd House (a safe haven for elderly women), the Banneker-Douglas Museum (a historic church preserving Maryland’s African-American heritage), the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County, City Hall, St. Mary’s Parish and finally, the Annapolis City Dock and popular Annapolis Market House.
This Annapolis Segway adventure concludes back at its starting point.
