You can take Segway rides through paradise

It’s as easy as walking—and more fun. You can now tour many places on Oahu on a Segwqy.

Segway of Hawaii offers tours of Waikiki, Kapiolani Park, Diamond Head, historic Honolulu, Kailua (pictured, above) and Lanikai.

Heard of Segways, but never ridden one? Every tour begins with a 20- to 30-minute orientation course. With no special skills, we found riding one immensely easy. The self-balancing personal transports zipped us along, and were friendly to both pedestrians and the environment, running along at 2 mph on about a dime’s worth of power an hour.

Each tour comes with a guide, usually born and raised in Hawaii. It may turn out to be the coolest thing you do on Oahu.
