Where do you want to go this weekend? That’s not always an easy question to answer if you use a wheelchair or scooter or just have difficulty walking or climbing steps, but AccessibleNiagara.com can help.
Born and raised in Niagara, and mobility impaired all of my life, I decided 12 years ago that this beautiful part of the world wouldn’t be kept from those on wheels. To that end, AccessibleNiagara.com now features more than 250 attractions, things to do and places to stay in Niagara…and they’re all accessible.
AccessibleNiagara.com is not only used every month by thousands of people with mobility impairment who are considering Niagara for a vacation but also locals who are, themselves, mobility impaired or looking for places to take an aged parent, or disabled out of town visitor.
We also tell you where you can rent a wheelchair or scooter for the day or week, what festivals are on, where to go to get the best views from your chair and even what’s free. And, from the website you can connect with me for one-on-one problem solving regarding unique situations.
Accessible wineries throughout Niagara, lovely hotels (and their restaurants), and 95 percent of what Niagara Falls has to offer, including the new fully accessible WEGO transit system, are here for everyone to enjoy, whether you have difficulty walking or are wheeling. You just have to know where to look and AccessibleNiagara.com is a good place to begin.
