Traveling with Disabilities

Travelers who are disabled have special challenges when traveling the world.  However, such challenges have not prevented a blind man from climbing to the top of Mt. Everest.  Just as difficult sometimes is making tourism businesses abide by the Americans With Disabilities Act.  The following links will provide you with information on destinations that meet the needs of disabled travelers. 

Please send me your favorite resources on this topic.  Email: Max Lent
