Hit the Road with Four-Wheeled Handicap Mobility

Mississippi Riverboat

Every wheelchair user knows there's handicap mobility—and then, there's HANDICAP MOBILITY. Your wheelchair only gets you so far. A new or used wheelchair accessible van gets you much farther. Whether you're the driver or the passenger-in-chief, a handicap van has the power to take you everywhere you want to go conveniently and comfortably. Let's take a look at a few of the amazing wheelchair accessible locations around the nation!

Amusement Parks

While Disney World and Disneyland are famous for accommodating guests with special needs, there’s an amusement park in Texas that was specifically designed for guests with special needs. Morgan's Wonderland in San Antonio, TX, is an ultra-accessible park for kids and adults alike, and the prices are incredibly reasonable. For the price of one adult ticket for one day at one theme park of Disney World, two adults and six kids can spend a day at Morgan's Wonderland, where you'll see dozens of handicap accessible vans in the parking lot every morning 'til night!

Voted the most family-friendly theme park in America for a number of years, Holiday World in rural Indiana features a water park, a special area for little ones, and lots of cool, holiday-themed rides like “HallowSwings”, “Reindeer Games”, and a “Star Spangled Carousel”.

Kings Island Amusement Park in Cincinnati, OH often wins awards as the best theme park children’s area in the nation. Open during summer and part of autumn, Kings Island has designed special attraction entry procedures to help guests with disabilities enjoy the park safely.

National Parks

Yellowstone Park

Besides the fact that many of our national parks are handicap accessible to some extent, people with disabilities are eligible for a free, lifetime Access Pass to all national parks across America. If your vacation plans include a visit to a national park, be sure to apply for the pass a few months before.

Spectacular Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park, CO has accessible trails, boardwalks, campsites, and public buildings. Before you go, check the park's web site to find out which trails, boardwalks, and campgrounds are accessible. Reservations are typically required at campgrounds, so be sure to plan ahead.

Florida's Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the US and an International Biosphere Reserve. Enjoy accessible backcountry camping, naturalist-guided boat and tram tours, and some of the most amazing wildlife you've ever seen!

Beaches

Senior day at the beach

An Internet search will quickly identify beaches near and far with accessible pathways, boardwalks and trails. Wheelchair users and slow walkers can access them independently, and they don't require special adaptive beach equipment. More beaches than ever have beach wheelchairs for rent. Beach wheelchairs have wide plastic tires that easily navigate the sand, and you can just roll out into the sea. Cool, wet fun!

Avalon Beach and Stone Harbor Beach, both in New Jersey, have accessible boardwalks, and you can also rent beach wheelchairs. In 2007, the town of Avalon was listed in Forbes magazine's "Top 100 Most Expensive Zip Codes" in the United States, and Stone Harbor is a picturesque beach town with plenty to see and do.

Sports Activities

Do you prefer winter sports or summer sports? Either way, get your go-for-it groove on at The National Sports Center for the Disabled in Winter Park, CO, where more than 3,000 children and adults play to win every year. Learn to kayak, canoe, climb rocks, fish, snowboard, snow ski, and the ever-popular more!

Art

Hop in a handicap accessible van conversion and head to Grand Rapids, MI, where the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park blends natural beauty and sculpture with glorious results! The park is fully accessible and waiting to satisfy all your senses sublimely. There's a Children's Garden with a Kid-Sense Garden, a tree-house play area and a water play area. Plan to spend the day.

New York, NY

Need a little more excitement? You'll ♥ New York—and the world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art. Enter on fabulous Fifth Avenue, and breathe in the creativity! The collections, buildings, programs, and services are accessible to all audiences, with special programs for visitors with disabilities. After spending hours in the museum, hit the streets of NYC for a world of exemplary food and shopping.

History

Colonial Williamsburg, VA

If you've never been to a “living history museum”, let Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia be your first—and take advantage of a 50% discount on tickets for guests with disabilities. Travel back to the 18th century for an up-close-and-personal look at how the first Americans lived. But be prepared for a few inaccessible buildings. They didn’t have the ADA back then, but they have interpreters now who will be happy to come outside the homes, buildings, and shops to enlighten you.

No matter where you go, remember that getting there is half the fun. That's where handicap mobility comes in, well, handy! Wheelchair accessible vans get you there in comfort, safety and style.
