I am looking at a rental at the Greens in Shipyard next summer. I use a motorized wheelchair to get around. I know there are a couple of steps to get into the condo but what about the rest of Shipyard and the island. Is it handicap friendly? Thanks.

I believe there are many wheelchair accessible locations on the island, although not all. With regard to Shipyard, I seem to recall that they have a beach wheelchair. You would need to call to inquire about their policies to use it. The Beach Club number is: (843) 842-3507.

I know there are no steps to get to the beach from the parking area. In the summer, there is also a courtesy golf cart to take you right up to the beach access point.

The Coastal Discovery Museum has a wheelchair ramp to the Discovery House. The outside trails are not paved and may be more challenging with a wheelchair, although I have seen folks navigate them.

Many restaurants are also wheelchair accessible. Just call ahead to check on each you would be interested for dinning.

If there are other specific places, let me know and I will try to find out.

Just about every one has met the requirements of access under the disabilities act. Not every condo has units that may meet your needs.

The one that i know that has handicapped units is SeaCrest Condominiums.
