Buffalo touring season is upon us, and this year there are even more fun ways to get around the city in search of historic landmarks.
One of the most interesting additions to the touring landscape is the development of Segway tours (learn more). The Segway makes for a more personalized and free roaming tour, and zipping around on these futuristic machines is just plain fun to boot. “We at Buffalo Touring Company are excited about our upcoming second touring season,” said Norm Jonas of Buffalo Touring Company. “Last season we entertained many guests from all across the Buffalo and the Western New York area, as well as visitors from various states across the USA and even a number of countries, including the United Kingdom, Spain, Russia and Germany. The common thread that we heard over and over again was about our wonderful architecture and the beauty of our parks and cultural museums. Truly we are so fortunate to have such marvelous structures from architectural giants and the amazing works of Olmsted in our midst. We are so pleased to offer these great visuals as we glide along on a Segway leaving no footprint from these incredible Green machines.”
As part of a touring promotion, Visit Buffalo Niagara has released a new ForRealTV webisode with host Nelson Starr. In the video, Nelson shows us the ins and outs of learning how to ride a Segway, before heading out in search of Buffalo’s Open-Air-Autobus. In the end, it’s the combination of all forms of touring that allow for a wide range of people to explore the city. From bike to boat to bus to Segway, the tourism industry is strengthened by all forms of transportation. Check out the video below to see what’s in store for a couple of Buffalo’s most unique touring opportunities.
The “Buffalo.ForRealTV” series is funded by the Phyllis W. Pierce Charitable Trust, the Buffalo Renaissance Foundation and the Simple Gifts Fund. The videos are produced by Visit Buffalo Niagara in collaboration with John Paget of First + Main Media. See additional videos here.
