Thanks to Segway of Fort Lauderdale for sponsoring this Nail Travels recipe exclusive. Make your way to the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk and enjoy a Segway tour with John and the boys. They go faster than you think. I got scolded for bumping tires, but Rubin’s Racin baby. Segways are easy to learn in about thirty seconds and a great way to explore the New River, in downtown Lauderdale. The tour takes you across the drawbridge and through some fancy neighborhoods. Coach Saban used to live there so act accordingly. Roll Tide.
