Dawn and Kristin Harkness of Wheeling City Tours in New London have been named 2015 Business Owners of the Year by the Hartford-based Connecticut Main Street Center, reports The Day.
The Segway Ladies, as they’re known, began their guided Segway tour business last year. After a successful first, they’re already booked into their 2015 season. Trip Advisor lists Wheeling City tours as the No. 1 activity to do in New London, perhaps because in addition to offering insightful tours of some of the City’s largest attractions such as Fort Trumbull, they also have unique offerings such as Segway Polo and Segway Water Cannon Competitions.
Annah Perch, executive director of New London Main Street, who nominated the Harknesses, said their “‘passion for New London is obvious and it is contagious.”
