With open stretches of sidewalk bordering Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic, a Segway rental puts you in the prime spot for people-watching, sightseeing and a whole lot of fun, Miami-style. What can you see in and around Miami Beach by Segway?
Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic: First-time visitors to Miami will likely recognize the area from reruns of Miami Vice and other pop culture references. Lined with a patchwork quilt of pastel Art Deco buildings, and drenched in sun nearly year-round, South Beach provides a visual feast to the visitor and the local alike. Although all buildings and hotels are quintessentially Florida, no two are the same, and the area boasts some interesting history. You’ll also enjoy the people-watching, as South Beach is a haven for supermodels, A-listers, and of course, the many, thoroughly tanned regulars on rollerblades. After surviving a spate of drug-related criminal activity in the ‘80s (think Scarface), South Beach is now one of the wealthiest and liveliest areas in the city.
Bass Museum of Art: Located between 21st and 22nd Streets on Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, the Bass Museum provides the perfect venue for you to escape the sun for a few hours to soak up some culture. This iconic Miami museum first opened its doors in 1963, and now houses more than 3,000 works of art from all over the world, spanning from the 15th century to present-day.
Holocaust Memorial: This Miami Beach landmark stands in commemoration of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust of World War II. Immediately recognizable by its macabre sculptures, the museum adequately captures the gruesome realities of Nazi brutality and inspires thought and reflection. The Miami Holocaust Memorial was conceived by a group of Holocaust survivors in 1984, and officially opened in 1990.
Versace Mansion: Many will remember that this luxurious mansion was not only the home of Gianni Versace, but also the site of his murder in 1997, when he was gunned down on the front steps after returning from a morning walk.
