That's great. Glad you found a group that has the type of tour that you're looking for. I hope you take the time after your trip to come back to this forum and let us know how it was. I don't think there's a better way to find truly accessible travel options than hearing about it from somebody else with physical limitations. Have a wonderful trip.

Jane, You will find Florida to be one of the easiest places to manage with a disability. From disabled parking to special assistance at theme parks, people who must use a wheelchair have a great deal of freedom in this state which I am sure must be 90% ADA compliant.

Hi, just saw your answer to someone's request for wheelchair accessible trips. I would be interested in trips anywhere where a manual wheelchair could be accommodated.

Hi eileen, Where is it that you wish to go? I find the area where you live to be exceptionally friendly to disabled people. In fact, almost all of the US is accessible to people in manual wheelchairs. While I avoid hiking trails in the national parks, obstacle courses, zip lines, canoe tours, and other nonsense like this, most places in the US have made enormous progress to adapting for disabled. I find hotels with wet rooms, switches placed in accessible locations, and now hotels are putting in lifts in swimming pools for disabled people. I stayed in one two weeks ago that was absolutely perfect.

I live in Florida when we are not traveling. This is a state that has more that it's share of older people with mobility issues, and it is exceptionally friendly for wheelchairs users. The only difficulty I really experience is that sometimes in stores merchants put display racks too close together for me to get between them, but that is not a huge inconvenience.

Eileen:

I'd be delighted to help in anyway I can. I use a power chair, so have more restrictions than you do, but still find numerous accessible options for people of all abilities. If you've got a few specific destinations that you're considering but don't know which one to choose, let me know and I'll share some of my thoughts on your options.

I will second another member's post that Florida is very wheelchair friendly, as is most of California. Las Vegas is one of my favorites due to the wide variety of entertainment options available in a compact area. If you're looking to go out of the country, I'd be happy to share some of my experiences regarding various destinations in Mexico, Europe and the Caribbean as well.

Happy travels!

I live in Palm Springs -- one of the best towns for accessibility in the world. Let me know if you have any questions. There are wonderful accessible natural attractions around here like Joshua Tree National Park, the Salton Sea, Mt. San Jacinto, etc, in addition to the cosmopolitan - yet very accessible - vibe of Palm Springs itself.
