The Winter 2015 issue of Emerging Horizons contains access information, travel tips and handy resources for wheelchair-users and slow walkers. This resource-filled issue is packed with access details on destinations, lodging options and tours; and offers industry updates and helpful tips for planning wheelchair-accessible vacations.

From a secluded Tucson mountain lodge, to a romantic retreat with theme rooms in Kansas City, and a rustic yurt on the Oregon coast, there’s an accessible lodging choice for just about everyone in this issue.

Also included is information about an accessible hike through a red rock canyon just outside Las Vegas, two roadside attractions competing for the title of the “World’s Largest Twine Ball”, and an accessible Iceland city and hot springs adventure.

Whether you want to check out the new accessible attractions and hotels in Reno, or get up-close-and-personal with rockets and space capsules in Alamogordo, there’s no shortage of accessible travel ideas in this issue. And if you’ve ever wondered about accessible snowmobiling and ice fishing, you’ll find some great resources in the Curious Traveler column.

And speaking of resources, this issue also contains information on accessible transportation in Taiwan, lift-equipped rental vans in Melbourne; tours for wheelchair-users and slow walkers in Barcelona, and accessible shore excursions in Jamaica, Capri and Pompeii.

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

Editor's Desk

Candy Harrington mulls over the features of her ideal barrier-free resort.


Located just outside of Tucson, this hacienda style B&B features an accessible room that will work for many wheelers and slow walkers. Not only is it close to two popular mountain attractions, but it also offers a great view of the night sky.

Gems and Germs

Gems are individuals or companies that demonstrate progressive attitudes towards people with disabilities, or who have sought to increase awareness to accessible tourism though their progressive policies and practices.

Germs are individuals or companies that maintain archaic attitudes towards people with disabilities or who endorse policies and practices that serve to discourage advances in accessible tourism.

Reykjavik Stopover

With Icelandair’s budget airfare offerings, Reykjavik makes a great extended layover on any European journey. This modern city features a bevy of cultural attractions, a good network of accessible transportation, and a number of accessible lodging choices.

Taking the Waters in Iceland

Known for its geothermal waters, Iceland boasts a bevy of hot springs, steam baths and spas. And although some of the smaller facilities may be a challenge for wheelers and slow walkers, these two top the accessible list.

A Tale of Two Twine Balls

Located almost 600 miles apart, these two giant balls of sisal twine waged a fierce competition for the title of the world’s largest twine ball. Although it’s arguable as to which one officially holds the honor, both of these quirky roadside attractions are definitely worth a stop on your next Midwestern road trip.

Las Vegas Detour

Located just an hour from the strip, this national conservation area offers a scenic drive dotted with sandstone cliffs and red rocks, several picnic areas and a nicely accessible boardwalk trail.

Off the Beaten Track in Alamogordo

This remote New Mexican town is home to a cool space museum and an unusual roadside attraction. You have to go out of your way to get there, but it’s definitely worth the drive.
