The Spring 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 historic B&B in Northern Missouri, to a western themed cabin in Cody, Wyoming, and a comfortable yurt in Southwestern Colorado, there’s an accessible lodging choice for just about everyone in this issue.

Also included is information about a must-do drive in Southern Iceland, access details about Newport’s gilded age mansions, and the perfect itinerary for an accessible trek through California’s coastal redwoods.

Whether you want to explore the quilt barns in Western Maryland, or step back in time in a California ghost town, there’s no shortage of accessible travel ideas in this issue. And if you’ve ever thought about planning an accessible family reunion, you’ll find the perfect venue in the Curious Traveler column.

And speaking of resources, this issue also contains information on accessible kayaking in Baja California, a purpose-built accessible hotel in the UK, beach wheelchairs in Trinidad, and a new Alaska access hotline.

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