Top 5 Accessible Cities to Visit in the U.S.
The summer vacation season is just around the corner. If you’re thinking about taking a road trip right here in the good ole USA, here are the top five accessible cities to consider.
The nation’s capital is home to several historical attractions, including the Smithsonian, the Washington Monument, and the White House. The city has worked diligently to improve wheelchair accessibility and now offers some of the most easily accessible transportation systems, in case you aren’t traveling in your own wheelchair accessible van.
Las Vegas, Nevada
All of the major attractions in Las Vegas are wheelchair accessible. This means nothing is off limits, from making your way down the strip and gawking at the Fountains at the Bellagio to gambling in the casinos or visiting Fremont Street. Las Vegas is filled with fun and exciting experiences, making Sin City one of the most visited wheelchair accessible tourist destinations in the world.
Also known as the Windy City, Chicago sits along the banks of Lake Michigan and is home to many unique architectural sites, sporting events, and theatrical performances. Most of Chicago’s railway stations and bus stops are wheelchair accessible, so if you do not have a wheelchair van, transportation will not be an issue. And of course, a trip to Chicago would not be complete without tasting the world-famous, deep-dish pizza.
The Mile High City’s Metro is entirely wheelchair accessible at all stations. Activities in Denver that are wheelchair accessible include, but are not limited to: the Natural History Museum, Historic Old Colorado City, Manitou Springs, and the Denver Art Museum.
Many of the exceptional attractions in Orlando, Florida are accessible to visitors who use wheelchairs, including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld. Each major theme park has a wide selection of rides that are available for people who use wheelchairs, and some of the rides will manually transfer your wheelchair to the ride itself for your convenience.
If you’re planning a road trip and don’t currently own a wheelchair accessible van, consider renting one for your adventure. Bussani Mobility offers short-term rental options that will help you enjoy all the fun opportunities that the spring and summer bring with it.
