Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of Summer here in the US (astronomically, Summer doesn’t start for a couple of weeks). Families are making plans to travel to destinations near and far, from sunny beaches to mountain campgrounds. The same is true for people with disabilities and their families. Traveling with a disability can present challenges, such as physical barriers to popular attractions, the complication of traveling with assistive devices, or the physical toll of getting from one place to another.

We turned to the NIDILRR community, and the greater disability community, to see what tools and tips they recommended to make summer traveling less stressful so you can enjoy the trip!

These are just a few resources to help you enjoy a Summer of travel. You might also like to dive into research on travel and disability from the NIDILRR community and elsewhere, available from our collection.
