My Segway has a first name

I would go so far as to say that my number one objective for my visit to D.C. was to go on the Segway tour. Ever since I found out such a thing existed three years ago, I set my heart on going.

Because we didn't think to book the tour prior to arriving in D.C. the only time we could go was 6 pm, so I hope you enjoy my night photos!

Riding the Segway is really fun, really easy, and you feel a bit like a celebrity as people point, take photos and generally look at you like, "Damn, I wish I were on a Segway!"

Yes, it's a super touristy thing to do, and $70 for the three hour tour isn't really a bargain, but I'd definitely do it again.

And yes, my Segway was named Lady Freedom.

So that was everything from the evening, but for the day time I actually wore my shorts and I felt like those needed to be posted as well!

Ok, that looks super fun! I rode a Segway when I visited Montreal a few year ago, but we didn't do any cool tour like this.

That looks like sooooo much fun! Love your leopard and red!

Gray Skies said...

How fun! I've wanted to ride a Segway ever since I saw Arrested Development for the first time and watched Gob drive around on his :)

Segways are SO much fun! I actually used to sell them, and I got to ride around in one all summer. It's amazing how the controls feel almost psychic...at a certain point you are just *thinking* about how fast you want to go, then suddenly you're moving that fast!

Courtney Erin said...

When my mother-in-law was visiting over the summer we took her on a segway tour in Guilford - it was really entertaining! And I love all the photos you snapped...makes me really miss DC.

Loving both versions of your outfit! Especially the shorts :)
And I would be far too scared for a Segway tour, hahaa... $70 doesn't seem too bad though

You two are by far the cutest people on a Segway ever! I'm actually going to D.C. in a couple of weeks. This post is making me super excited.

Silver Strands said...

Good for you for going after your segway dream trip! You look great :)

Jess said...

Ha! The segway tour looks super fun. You took some really great pictures of the monuments!

Anne said...

Did you want us to get the Oscar Meyer theme song in our heads? Or is that just me? My Segway has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R...

Anyway, nice pictures from your tour! And I really dig the leopard print with red pants.

Kavery said...

I'd love to try out one. You look like you had a lot of fun on it.

How fun! I remember when I was at uni there was this tall, long-haired guy who would ride around on a Segway wearing a long wizard robe. He was kind of awesome. Love the shorts, by the way :)

Krystal said...

oh my gosh...that is so awesome that you did that!

Autumn Van Weir said...

Was it called "Segs in the City"? last time I was there we saw signs for that tour and I thought the name was delightfully clever! Though my friend can't ever remember it and calls it "sex on the segway". That would be far less practical....

FashionJazz said...

These are awesome pics!! Happy Tuesday xx

Vanessa said...

Aaaaaaaand.... a Segway tour of D.C. is now officially on my bucket list.
I think going at night would be a great time to see bits of the city that look different and dramatically lit in the dark.

you are too funny! what a great way to see the city and such style on that segway! nice.

Alex Elizabeth said...

I have never been on a Segway but it's probably way better than walking. The metro stops always seem so far away from each other! I love the night photos. They're so dramatic!

Leopard and red... must think about this. I have a red belt around here somewhere...

silvergirl said...

love that top and look how vesatile!
cracking up that your segway had a name
have always wanted to do a segway tour somewhere!

Amber Blue Bird said...

My friends boyfriend has one of these things and he has taken some really nasty spills off of it. Of course I am sure he fell off while doing something stupid. Anyway, you look very non touristy in this outfit, very fierce :)

Lorena said...

How much fun. I have never seen the DC monuments at night and they look amazing - the lighting is perfect and so are your pics.
I don't think i'd take the Seg, I actually enjoy walking :)

Frances Joy said...

I always used to see those segway tours, but I've never done one. And I loooove that leopard top! Love!

The Closet Shopper said...

Looks like you're having an amazing trip. And the weather looks pretty great too.

Love the leopard shirt. Loved it so much I just ordered it from Nordstrom. I'm such a copy cat stalker!!

TaraMixandMatch said...

I did a segway tour in New Hampshire through the woods and it was so much fun :) I love your different pairings with the leopard shirt...so cute!

Shey said...

I didn't know what was what they were called (I'm embarrassed to say it), I bet you had lots of fun! =D

DaniellaBella said...

Segways are goofy and awesome! I've always wanted to do a tour! Brilliant!!!
