Segway of Newport is a great choice if you're seeking
a fun and convenient way to get around the city, especially during the busy summer season.
Why sit through traffic in your car or walk great lengths to your destination when you can easily hop on your Segway or bike and get there much quicker?
With a Segway, Dahon or electric bicycle, you can cover just as much ground as you can in a car. You also have the ability to pull over and hop off as often as you want, allowing you to take in the beautiful scenery and many attractions that Newport has to offer.

On my last visit to Newport I rented a red Dahon bicycle, which I used on my daily rides around the Ten Mile Ocean Drive.
I was in town for a week and didn't want to be a total slacker, so the daily bike rides allowed me to work off some of the calories from all the great food I ate while I was there.
Segway of Newport offers some great tours to introduce you to the city:
The guided Historic Newport Mansion Tour takes you down Bellevue Avenue to see the "summer cottages" of some of America's wealthiest families, including the Vanderbilts, Astors and Doris Duke.

The Scenic Ocean Drive Tour takes you along the stunning coastline at the southern end of Aquidneck Island, along the famous Ten Mile Ocean Drive.
You'll enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor and pass by countless historic sites, including:
