An Insider Tour of the Twin Cities


In the past, we’ve introduced you to a number of ways to tour the Twin Cities. You can do so on land by bus, bike, or light rail, or by water on a paddleboard or riverboat. One of the more unique ways, however, is by Segway, which thanks to Mobile Entertainment, you can now do while also learning facts locals might not even know. 

And who wouldn’t want an insider tour?

Aimed at visitors (but still equally fun for residents), the tour starts at the Minneapolis Convention Center and takes riders through the heart of downtown, past sights like Loring Park, Nicollet Mall, the Guthrie Theater, Minneapolis Riverfront and Gateway Park. Throughout the ride expert guides will share 15 secrets about the city, ranging from historical tales to tips for traveling through the area.

This three-hour tour is the only of its kind to depart from the convention center, and is only being offered select days through the rest of the summer, so don’t hesitate to reserve your spot (reservations: 952-888-9200).

Tour dates:
July 1-3, 10, 17, 24 & 31 at 8:30 a.m.
Aug. 7, 14, 21 & 28 at 8:30 a.m.
