For people who use wheelchairs, a certain amount of planning ahead is often required when going out.Though the Americans with Disabilities Act help pave the way for a more accessible and open world, the transition is a process. And not everyone is there yet. That’s why it’s good to know what places are more accommodating to those who use wheelchairs to get around. Mobility vans can take you to any road you wish to drive on, but they can’t take you inside of buildings. Well, technically they could, but they probably shouldn’t be.
What if there was a guide to places are handicap accessible?
What if there was a place where you could review the accessibility of facility or business?
There is. It’s called Euan’s Guide.
Knowing Where to Go and How to Get There
Euan’s Guide hosts reviews of “disability access for accessible venues”.
In other words, users go on and review how accessible a venue is for those who have disabilities. Visitors can browse a wide variety of categories such as attractions, places to stay, events, and more.
All reviews are done either by someone with a disabilities or a friend/family member of someone with a disability.
For each venue or event, they list the different accessibility features each local has (and doesn’t have). In addition, Euan’s compiles reviews to spotlight recommended venues and events.
Besides reviews, they also share relevant news, tips, and advice.
Simply put, if used correctly, Euan’s Guide could essentially help someone plan an entire vacation.
About Euan’s Guide
Euan’s Guide came from Euan MacDonald and his sister KiKi. Euan uses a wheelchair due to motor neuron disease, but that doesn’t stop him from wanting to see the world.
So he decided to create a guide that listed restaurants, bars, hotels, theatres, festivals, and more, rating them on a scale of accessibility. Since its launch, Euan’s Guide has become a go-to spot for finding accessible locales and events.
