The Disabled Traveler is a
non-profit 501©(3). The goal is to raise
funds to develop a web site concerning accessibility features at your National
Parks. To remove
much of the unknown in our National Parks that concerns visitors with a
disability or age related difficulties.
condensing and focusing accessible areas of the parks to one web site, a
visitor will be able to better prepare themselves for an experience they will
cherish and talk about forever.
some vacationers, planning a trip involves making reservations and packing up
the car, kids or grandkids…..for travelers with a disability and/or age related difficulty, it
may first mean knowing more about the destination and accommodations currently
available before hitting the road.
There is a huge untapped market for accessibility information about our National
Parks. 57 million persons
with a disability and another 57 million age 60 (U.S. Census 2010) and above who may experience age related difficulties. This group is large, vocal, wants to travel, and has discretionary income in the billions of dollars.
The Disabled Traveler does not evaluate or
criticize anything regarding accessibility at our national parks.

The national parks are scattered throughout our country's natural borders and
they hold a teaching process of nature that will humble those who experience it
we are visitors in the national parks, nature at its finest. The citizens
of these parks, from four legged to winged creatures, did not invite us but
rather we invited ourselves to their homes. The least we can do when
we visit these parks is to leave the delicate balance of nature intact.
