The Best Way to See Greenville, South Carolina: By Segway

Gliding through Greenville on Segways

Of all the ways to see the sights in and around historic downtown Greenville, gliding effortlessly on top of a Segway has to be the most fun!

The “people mover” machines used on the Greenville Segway Tour are fun and easy. The non-motorized machines are based on balance and respond to how your body shifts. Leaning forward or backward or lightly moving the steering to the left or right is all you need to do — the Segway technology takes care of the rest.

A Quad Biking Tour in Namibia

On a quad bike tour of the Namib Desert

Piled high against the shores of the Atlantic Ocean are the golden red sands of the Namib Desert. Between the towns of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, a massive dune field backs the seaside. While on the coast of Namibia, we found time to jump on off-road bikes as part of a quad bike tour of the Namib Desert and explore this beautiful part of the country.

Exploring Greenland: The Next Frontier for Travelers

Hiking the Arctic Circle Trail in Greenland during the summer

Call it the Walter Mitty effect, but Greenland is suddenly on the cusp of shedding its arctic-explorers-only reputation to become the next great travel destination. Rather than cold and inhospitable, its shores now appear like an unexplored frontier to sure adventure.

While most won’t take an ice-cold leap of faith from a helicopter into the north Atlantic, there’s no shortage of awe-inspiring Mitty moments that will send chills down your spine. Just a quick search for “things to do in Greenland” results in a list from Arctic wildlife viewing to thermal hot spring swims.
