This March, Access-Able would like to introduce Travel Companions as the newest category on our already extensive Links page. This page will greatly assist individuals who want to travel but are unable to find a personal care attendant or travel companion to make their trip a reality.
These links span the globe and include group as well individual travel. One offers scheduled group tours to the most popular destination in the United States while another offers services to those traveling to Hawaii. There are even a couple of links that take you to companies that maintain an active database of caregivers and will help match you with someone who has just the right personality and attitude.
If you are looking for someone to travel with you, whether you need extensive care or just a little nudge now and again - you will not find a more extensive list of Personal Travel Companions anywhere on the web. And, if you haven't checkout out our Links Page lately, you might find just the thing, person or place you needed to make your dream trip become a reality!

Great Coastal Getaway
If the winter blues have you thinking about sun, sand, and surf, then you may wan to check out Sandollar Sity, located on the beautiful island community of Port Aransas, Texas. Sandollar Sity consists of several beach houses and condo-style apartments, two of which are wheelchair accessible. You will find them situated on the north end of Mustang Island with spectacular Oceanside views of the gulf of Mexico.
All of the condos at Sandollar Sity have decks (with furniture) facing the gulf, full kitchens, central heat and air conditioning, color TV and VCR as well as wireless internet. All linens are provided (but do bring your own beach towels) and there are barbecue pits and picnic tables located at the party area called the Sand Spot. The two accessible condos are 3034-A & 3034-B which are located on the ground floor and have one bedroom each. The doorways are 36” wide, there is ample room to move about and the bedroom has two double beds. The bathroom has been redesigned and has a roll in shower with grab bars, fold down seat and hand held shower head. There is also knee clearance under the sink.
Guests will enjoy the relaxing lifestyle on Mustang Island. Port Aransas is full of opportunities to unwind, shop, eat, and explore some very unique nature. For example; Mustang Island is located just north of South Padre Island and the Rio Grande Valley which, primarily due to its location, is a feeding ground for a multitude of migrating birds. The wetlands that line the bay sides of these coastal islands create an ideal habitat for waterfowl and bird watching is popular, especially during the fall and spring migrating season. Planning a coastal getaway is a great way to get through the last few weeks of winter, knowing that there is a place to go to warm our bones in the sun and sink our toes in the sand.
