"Man is not made for society, but society is made for man. No institution can be made good that does not tend to improve the individual."
Margaret Fuller, American Social Reformer (1810-1850)
Hi, we are Bill and Carol Randall and we live in Colorado. We have always liked to travel and like many of you don't get to do it enough. Carol has MS and uses a wheelchair or scooter. This has given us some first hand experience with unpleasant surprises and access problems. That's why we started Access-Able Travel Source. We are an information service! We are not travel agents, just travelers. We think we have come up with a way to help fellow travelers.
We have created a place to store information for all to use. Each of us has access information but have never had a way to share it. Access-Able is reaching out to persons from around the world and inviting them to share their experiences. As you know the most reliable access information comes from other persons who are disabled.
This can work only with your support. You can help by telling others about us and e-mailing us information on accessibility. Any information you have can help someone else. On future trips be aware of things that could help persons with different needs.
With your help persons with disabilities from around the world can enjoy worry free travel.
Access-Able Travel Source is dedicated to aiding travelers with disabilities and the mature traveler. We accomplish this by having practical information needed to go cross town or around the world. The data base has not only accessible accommodations, but everything to make a trip fun and exciting. We have information about scuba diving for persons withall types of disabilities. There are accessible safaris, sailing, raft trips and even a place where you can learn to sky sail. We've included information for persons who are blind about hands on attractions. Seashore areas that have beach wheelchairs. The basis of Access-Able is to emphasize the positive.
All too often these travelers experience unwanted surprises or difficulties with access. This discourages many people from traveling. Fear and doubt keeps many people from even thinking about going somewhere. In reality it is possible, not just a dream.
We have divided the data into different categories:
Disclaimer: The entries given for any location are not meant to be a complete list of accessible facilities or services at that location, but a representation of the accessible facilities and services there.
It is Access-Able's goal to provide accurate and up to date access information, however the information comes from many different sources, mistakes and typos can occur, things change and each persons needs are different. Therefore Access-Able Travel Source is not responsible for anycost, injury, damage or inconvenience caused by the use of this information. It is the responsibility of each user and we urge them to, verify that any facility or service they intend to use is suitable for them. However, if you find any information here inaccurate or outdated please notify us and we will make the appropriate correction.
