The Autumn 2013 issue of Emerging Horizons contains access information, travel tips and handy resources for wheelchair-users and slow walkers. This “Discover the World” 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 a quaint Colorado Springs B&B, to a rural Alberta lodge, a homey Julian inn and a luxurious Phoenix resort, there’s an accessible lodging choice for just about everyone.

Also included is information on some of the free accessible cultural attractions and museums in the Smithsonian of the south — Raleigh, North Carolina; as well as details about the most accessible ways to explore Colorado’s Pikes Peak.

If you’d like to hit the road, don’t miss the fun driving itinerary in Eastern San Diego County. It features magnificent views, a historic gold rush town, some accessible trails and a one-of-a-kind outdoor art installation.

Also included is access information about Peter Lougheed Provincial Park in the Canadian Rockies, and an accessible wildlife preserve on Puget Sound. And if you’ve ever dreamed about traveling to Romania, but thought it wasn’t accessible, then you’ll want to check out the resources in the Curious Traveler column.

And speaking of resources, this issue also contains information on an accessible beach in Mexico, and accessible tours in Greece, San Francisco and the French wine country. In short, we’ve got everything you need to plan your next trip.

Detailed access information, helpful travel tips and useful resources — that’s what Emerging Horizons is all about.
