Accessible Holidays in New York City and New York State
It’s hard to know where to start when talking about all the great attractions that are accessible to disabled travellers in the Big Apple. Simply exploring the city is on the agenda for visitors since the pavements all have low-cut kerbs. Most of the famous venues, from the Empire State Building and the Metropolitan Museum to the Guggenheim and Frick Collection, are wheelchair friendly, and if you are looking for entertainment the Lincoln Center is entirely accessible and hosts opera, ballet and concerts.
New York’s past mayor Rudi Giuliani invested in creating an accessibility guide for disabled visitors. At over 100 pages, it will be your holiday bible: http://www.nyc.gov/html/mopd/downloads/pdf/accessibility_guide.pdf
For accessible holidaying in upstate New York, Can be Done recommends the Hudson Valley https://youtu.be/4noWLEbMwgM or wine country of The Finger Lakes, where the scenery is outstanding and the wineries are for the most part wheelchair friendly.
Disabled Holidays to Washington DC
Boasting one of the most wheelchair friendly underground systems in the world, the attractions of America’s capital are at your fingertips when you visit Washington DC with Can be Done.
As an epicentre of culture, many of the city’s institutions, theatres and concert halls can offer assistive listening devices, guidebooks in Large Print or Braille and, of course, wheelchair access throughout the exhibition halls and bathrooms. Whether you are exploring the Hillwood Estate and Museum, the International Spy Museum or the Smithsonian Institute, you are guaranteed a full experience.

Boston for Disabled Travellers
Boston is a relatively level city so it lends itself well to accessibility. To cover the distances in comfort and to make sure you see the highlights, Can be Done recommends the Boston Duck Tours, whose amphibious vehicles are equipped with wheelchair lifts. Most of the museums and attractions are also set up to welcome disabled travellers.
If you want some action while holidaying in Boston then the River Charles will beckon. Community Boating has been established in the city, and their adapted sailboats with their transfer equipment will give you the opportunity to try your hand on the water.
