The Summer 2014 issue of Emerging Horizons contains access information, travel tips and handy resources for wheelchair-users and slow walkers. This “Fun in the Summer” 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 rustic Lake Michigan retreat, to an upscale Wisconsin cabin and a Colorado family reunion venue, there’s an accessible lodging choice for just about everyone. Add in an accessible yurt in the middle of California wine country, and you have even more choices.

Also included is information about the Grand Canyon Skywalk, as well as a nearby accessible lodging choice, an off-the-beaten-track drive along the Hopi Arts Trail, and a new Grand Canyon Access Guide.

Whether you want to take in Calgary’s cultural gems or enjoy the majesty of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, there’s no shortage of accessible travel ideas in this issue. And if you’ve ever wondered what the most accessible way to get to Vancouver Island is, you’ll find the answer in the Curious Traveler column.

And speaking of resources, this issue also contains information on accessible hotels and attractions in Barcelona, an access project in Malta, and accessible Madrid tours; as well as details about beach wheelchairs in Puerto Vallarta and accessible snorkeling on the Riviera Maya.

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