I’m sure everyone’s seen the Paul Blart: Mall Cop movies. Watching Paul stroll up and down the mall on his Segway seemed like the coolest thing you’ve ever seen. Buying a Segway is maybe out of the picture for some but taking a Segway tour in Galveston is a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy.
Galveston is city of culture and pure history, and with the Segway tours offered, you can experience Galveston in a new light in which you’ve never thought you could. Today we’re going to be discussing where to go on a Segway tour in Galveston as well as what you will experience while you are on one.

- Victorian homes
- The Strand

The Seawall Cruise & The Segway Experience
This tour offers you the thrilling experience of riding a Segway through Galveston without having to worry about Galveston’s historical aspect. The tour is mainly based near the Seawall.
You get to see interesting sites like Hotel Galvez, Pleasure Pier, and much more. If you aren’t really a history buff and more of a Segway enthusiast who wants to see the city, I would definitely recommend this tour for you!
The Haunted Legends Tour
This tour takes you through the more paranormal side of Galveston. You go through haunted and cemeteries where paranormal activity has actually taken place before. I learned a lot about the scarier side of Galveston. My tour guide shared many sinister stories about the events taken place in Galveston. Ghosts are said to still be living in those areas so watch out!
By far this was my favorite tour. The only thing to consider is you cant hold on to anyone if you get spooked as you are on the segway.
To conclude, a Segway tout is a vast experience for you and your whole family. It teaches a lot about the historical and paranormal side of Galveston that most have overlooked or didn’t think even existed.
Who would have thought that a small beach island such as Galveston would have haunted houses and a rich history? Hopefully taking one of these tours will help you see Galveston in a way in which you’ve never imagined!
