Segways in Celebration FL

Jonathan & friend, Ally and Taylor came down from SE GA for a visit with me before I head back N in April.  While they were here we decided to do the Segway tour of Celebration.  We head over to Irlo Bronson Hwy and take a quick 15 minute training session on the operation of the Segway before they turned us out on the busy street and the trails of the town.  Here is a quick video of Taylor receiving her lesson.

After we passed the necessary stopping and turning we meet our guide and then he gives us information about crossing as a team, how we were to let him be our eyes when crossing and we were to look straight ahead until we got out of traffic.  It was so much fun.  We saw so much wildlife.  Celebration is a town that Walt Disney originally built for the families working at Disney.  That didn't pan out and it was more expensive than he had planned so it is just a cute community with a town and lots of trails/boardwalks.  It is very well maintained.  It is also a good place to go walking.  We saw alligators, lots of birds and lots of very nice houses.

 We all had a great time and would do it again.  Probably not as long as this 2 hr 13 mile trip but well worth it.  There is a coupon in the coupon books around town if you plan on doing this.

We've never tried a Segway-you made it look like fun though. Never say never I guess...

Definitely looked like another fun day in Margie put it!! I saw some of you on sidewalks and also in the middle of a street. Must not be much traffic in Celebration to ride in the streets!
