This “See the USA” issue is packed with access details on destinations, lodging options and tours; and offers industry updates, resources and helpful tips for planning wheelchair-accessible vacations.

From accessible yurts in Colorado, to a South Dakota inn near Mount Rushmore, and a roomy suite in Grand Canyon country, there’s an accessible lodging choice for just about everyone.

Also included is information on accessible caves throughout America, a new wildlife park in Arizona and access information on the historic baths in Hot Springs National Park.

If you’d like to hit the road, don’t miss the details about the Thunder Road route in Northeastern Tennessee; and if you’d prefer to park your car and walk, you’ll want to learn about the new wine tasting stroll in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

And don’t miss the access information about Mount Rushmore, the Black Hills and Badlands National Park.

Add in a heap of resources, websites and travel information for wheelchair-users and slow walkers, and you’ve got everything you need to plan your next trip.
