The Spring 2013 issue of Emerging Horizons contains access information, travel tips and handy resources for wheelchair-users and slow walkers. It’s packed with access details on foreign and domestic destinations, lodging and tours; and offers industry updates, resources and helpful tips for planning wheelchair-accessible vacations.

From a romantic inn in South Carolina covered bridge country, to a lakeside retreat in Wisconsin and a five-star hotel in downtown Minneapolis, there’s an accessible lodging choice for just about everyone.

Also included are some accessible off-the-beaten-path finds, like sites in the less-touristed side of Zion National Park, and a whiskey, wine and moonshine tasting route through Central Kentucky.

Big cities aren’t overlooked either, with some accessible stops along the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway in Minneapolis, and tips for finding accessible transportation in Singapore.

There’s also information about an accessible tour and transportation provider in mainland Italy, an accessible outdoor tour provide on the island of Sicily, and a new fleet of wheelchair-accessible taxis in Rhode Island.

Add in a heap of resources, like a new website with accessibility reviews on airlines, a travel app that lists accessible transit stops, and a free access guide to Britain, and you’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.
