Destinations

Destinations around the world provide accessibility offerings for travelers of all abilities. Consider a trip to one of these destinations:

 

Alexandria, Virginia

Accessibility to the historic city begins at the nearby airports. There are a variety of services available for travelers, including shuttle buses with wheelchair lifts and elevators with braille. The disability navigator website offers a list of programs in Alexandria and the surrounding area.

 

Kissimmee, Florida

Kissimmee is an ideal destination for those with mobility challenges or sensory sensitivities due in part to the many nearby theme parks. Walt Disney World, LEGOLAND Florida, SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Orlando Resort and Gatorland all offer a variety of accessible services from braille guidebooks to virtual queues for rides.

 

Monaco

The Principality of Monaco caters to travelers with diverse needs. Its public buses are wheelchair accessible and offer audio announcements for the visually impaired. Nouveau Musée de Monaco offers free access to visitors with disabilities.

 

North Carolina

North Carolina offers accessibility options to travelers throughout the state. High Point is the world’s first and only autism-certified destination. Raleigh and Durham take part in the Sunflower Program, a discreet program for individuals with hidden disabilities. The Biltmore Estate in Asheville features paved paths in its gardens and ramps and elevators throughout the historic mansion.

 

Toronto, Ontario

Many of the city’s most popular attractions offer wheelchair accessibility and sensory-friendly options including Ripley’s Aquarium, The Hockey Hall of Fame, Art Gallery of Ontario and The Royal Ontario Museum.
