Driving Vacations for Wheelers and Slow Walkers
by Candy Harrington
2012 ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year
Billed as the world’s first inclusive road trip book, this detailed resource features 22 driving routes across the United States with information about wheelchair-accessible sites, lodging options, trails, attractions and restaurants along the way. A great read for anyone who wants to hit the road — disabled or able-bodied — 22 Accessible Road Trips captures the diversity of America, with off-the beaten path finds and unique roadside attractions, as well as must-see metropolitan sights in the gateway cities.
Each chapter includes
- A map illustrating the route
- Information about sights and attractions in the major stops along the route, along with unique lodging suggestions
- Details about seasonal road closures, special festivals and events, and the optimal time to drive each route
- Unique restaurants along the way — not necessarily fine dining, but definitely memorable.
- Gateway city sights and attractions
- Information about the gateway city airports, and accessible van rentals in the gateway cities, for folks who want to do a fly-drive trip.
- Alternate starting points for the route
- Ideas to customize the route — to make it a longer trip, combine two routes together or even do day trips from the gateway city
- Essential travel planning resources
A chapter about road trip tips and essential planning resources is also included. Top it off with a foreword by National Geographic’s Christopher Elliott, and over 65 photos by Charles Pannell and you have all the ingredients for a perfect road trip.
