Scooter tours offer unique view of Music City

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

There's a popular new way to get around Music City, and it doesn't take much of your energy to enjoy it.

In fact, Nashville Scooter Tours use a different type of energy altogether.

"For a new rider I always tell them to just keep their hands on these the whole time," said tourguide Jillian Arciero.

Hands on the brakes - it's good advice for new riders about to take off.

Wednesday, a group zipped through the 12 South neighborhood and headed for Music Row.

Susan Jones has been getting around on two wheels for years. She founded Nashville Scooter Tours and said it's more than just a way to see the city's sights.

"I realized that Americans really don't know how to ride scooters yet, so doing the scooter tours allows us to really teach them," she said.

Arciero knows the Music Row area well, because she's also a singer-songwriter.

"It's cool, as we're driving down, to be like, 'I was just recording there yesterday,'" she said.

Not only are the scooters fun to ride, but they're also friendly to the environment. Powered by an electric battery, it takes about an hour to charge the scooters and riders can travel up to 55 miles on a single charge.

"They will definitely see how fun it is," Jones said. "Then one day they will want to own one, and they'll use their car some of the time and use their scooter the other times."

Parking on a scooter is a breeze, too, which makes those spontaneous summer stops even more enticing.

If you would like to take a scooter tour, rides can last up to two hours and cost up to $60. For more information, visit http://www.nashvillescootertours.com/
