Discover Philadelphia By Segway
Experience the relaxed and exciting way to explore the city on this one-hour Segway cruise along the Delaware River and through the Historic District, South Philly neighborhood, the Italian Market and Society Hill.
The beginning of your tour takes you through Historic Old City and down to Penn’s Landing, with views over to New Jersey and out to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Continue along the Delaware River past historic ships and popular restaurants. Then, cross Columbus Boulevard to Headhouse Plaza and head south into the Bella Vista neighborhood. An often overlooked part of town for travelers, you get a peek at the artistic side while passing murals and artistic havens.
You then travel up through the iconic Italian Market (very popular with fans of the Rocky movies). Then, experience the eclectic South Street – viewing the Philadelphia Magic Gardens and several blocks along this historic street. Your next neighborhood to explore is Society Hill with gorgeous historic homes, the nation’s first hospital (Penn Hospital), and quaint, quiet streets. Finally, head through the Independence Mall area, along Race Street, and back to our location next to the Betsy Ross House.
