These accessible travel suggestions were crowdsourced by the Get Out & Enjoy Life [GOEL] program, a joint educational initiative between Wheel:Life and SPORTS ‘N SPOKES magazine, published by the Paralyzed Veterans of America. This book culminates the month-long GOEL accessible travel education program and photo contest that launched June 1.

With more than 100 pages, Discovering shares accessible travel destinations and family fun spots nationwide. The book applies to anyone who has a mobility challenge, whether you are new to using a wheelchair or a seasoned pro.

“Wheel:Life has prepared this travel guide to assist people who use wheelchairs with new and exciting ways to explore their world,” author Lisa Wells says. “We are thrilled to provide practical advice by offering handy travel tips, family-friendly destinations and travel pictures shared by wheelchair users.”

Wheel:Life is able to publish resources like this book due to the generous financial support of sponsors like ABC Medical, a leading national provider of urology and continence care supplies.

“ABC Medical is proud to support Wheel:Life as it promotes a full and active life as a wheelchair user,” states Keith Jones, CEO of ABC Medical. Jones continues, “We firmly believe that an active lifestyle leads to a healthier, more fulfilling life. The partnership with Wheel:Life was a natural fit.” ABC Medical is one of the largest supporters of adaptive sports in the United States, contributing hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to adaptive programs nationwide.
