Charlotte: Historic Uptown 90-Minute Segway Tour

2. Charlotte: Historic Uptown 90-Minute Segway Tour

Charlotte has interesting sights and attractions befitting its status as one of the 20 largest U.S. cities, but you might not know it. Our 1.5-hour tour will get you started. We give you 15-20 minutes of practice and orientation before heading out on our adventure. The southern part of the city hosts new museums and cultural spaces, so it’s a good place to open your eyes to current development. But Charlotte was already well established during the Revolutionary War, when residents drove out British General Cornwallis. The best place to learn about its history is in the center of town, where we will ride through the Fourth Ward neighborhood. It has Charlotte's oldest homes and cemetery. Of course you also get to see our high-rises and skyscrapers up close, as well as numerous outdoor fountains and public works of art.
