Best Way to Beat the Desert Ridge Bottleneck

BY JIMMY MAGAHERN

Published by: Phoenix Magazine, August 2007


Navigating the weekend traffic around Desert Ridge Marketplace can make you feel like your SUV’s gone wading in the lazy river ride at the waterpark. Unless you’re high-tailing it past all the idling Escalades in a spiffy Segway Personal Transporter. Newlyweds Brian and Darcie Lamacchia from the new Segway of Scottsdale offer one-hour guided tours from the JW Marriott Desert Ridge that happily venture off the resort’s golf course to give riders a chance to zoom along desert walkways and – if you ask daredevil Brian first – over to the nearby shopping district. Get your “Weird” Al on for $65. 5350 E. Marriott Drive, Phoenix, 480-293-5000 or call Segway of Scottsdale, 623-512-2882
