With detailed travel itineraries, 22 Accessible Road Trips: Driving Vacations for Wheelers and Slow Walkers, is a book that provides information and for people with disabilites to use a vehicle to travel within the U.S. Besides the factual tips and resources, it’s easy to get carried away with the author’s advice and plan a trip of your own.
The book starts off with a chapter on tips and suggestions for road trips specifically for persons who use a wheelchair, walker, scooter or other mobility device. The author, Candy B. Harrington, has done a great deal of research that can also be used for anyone pushing a baby stroller or who who needs to take breaks to rest as they travel.
Featuring the Pacific, Mountain, Central and Eastern states, each road trip contains a map, detailed information on places to see, recommendations on where to eat, ideas to make your trip longer and much more satisfying. As I read each itinerary, I was amazed at the details, including accessible parking and walkways, website links for attractions, accessible public transportation, and places that provide loaner wheelchairs. The suggestions about unique and fun attractions helps you add more entertainment to your road trip.
Each road trip can be completed in about two – three weeks. They all start in a gateway city and offer options to create a flexible trip both time-wise and attraction wise. As someone who uses a scooter to get around and enjoys travel by car, 22 Accessible Road Trips, has given me ideas on new places to see with the pertinent facts I require.
