Synopsis

101 Accessible Vacations: Travel Ideas for Wheelers and Slow Walkers is the first guidebook dedicated exclusively to wheelchair-accessible destinations, lodgings and recreational opportunities. Penned by Candy B. Harrington, the editor of Emerging Horizons, this new title focuses on the holiday planning needs of wheelchair-users and slow walkers.101 Accessible Vacations contains destination information on over 101 cities, lodging options, national parks, tourist attractions and recreational activities around the country. The book is organised so readers can search for a holiday based on their specific interests or travel styles. Unlike other guidebooks that are organised geographically, 101 Accessible Vacations includes sections ranging from ""Road Trips"" and ""The Great Outdoors"" to ""Historic Haunts"" and ""Cruisin"". And last but not least, there is ""Candy's Picks"", which includes a collection of some of the author's favourite trips, destinations and activities.Candy describes the access of all attractions, lodging options and tourist sights, rather than just stating that something is or isn't accessible. After all, accessibility is in the eye of the beholder; and what may be accessible to one person can be filled with obstacles to someone else.There's a world of travel choices out there for wheelers and slow walkers. And this book contains many of those choices; along with updated resources, information and access details to make them a reality.
