Weekend Warriors: Day Trips for People with Disabilities - The Mobility Resource

What does your Saturday look like?

It’s time to put on your shoes and get out of the door!

The fall is the perfect time of year to make a weekend road trip, before the winter sets in.

Ready to roll? Here are some destinations to consider for your next weekend road trip:

Travel by Rail

Traveling by railroad can provide travelers with a sense of wonder and scale. For people with disabilities, one option to explore grand scenery without worrying about accessibility is the railroad. Scenes such as the Canadian Rockies or the Grand Canyon make a great rail excursion.

A Beach Excursion

While most people think of going to the beach in the summer, the offseason usually means discounts on hotels and other amenities. For those who use motor or manual wheelchairs, the sand can be a hassle. So be sure to rent a beach wheelchair!

Museum of Art

For those art lovers out there, many cities hold art treasures, sculptures, and interactive activities for children of all abilities.

Adventure Tours and Special Events

Check out organizations like:

  • Autism on the Seas
  • Autreat
  • The National Ability Center
  • The National Sports Center for the Disabled

Theme Parks

Theme parks can be found all across the U.S. including:

  • Disney World
  • Holiday World
  • Legoland
  • Morgan’s Wonderland
  • Six Flags

Don’t miss out on enjoying the fall!
