Wheelchair Accessible Fun in the Sun

Summer is in full swing already and we want to help you make the most out of the warmer weather and longer days of the season. Check out this list of great wheelchair accessible activities that you can search online to find near you or a destination of your choice. 

Head to the beach or pool
This is a great way to beat the heat and enjoy summer! Look for pools and beaches that offer wheelchair friendly resources such as handicap pool lifts and beach wheelchairs to make it easier to get around.  

Go to a Movie Theater or Drive in Movie
Seeing a new film is always fun and a great way to stay cool! You find accessible options in any indoor theater, or you can check out accessible options for nearby drive-in movie theaters. 

Explore local or national parks
Whether you go to the park nearby or plan an accessible road trip, visiting parks is a fantastic summer adventure. There is so much to enjoy in nature like bird watching, trying out accessible hiking trails, or packing a picnic.  

Accessible boating or fishing trip
Most lakes and rivers have accessible boat ramps to help you board a boat if you have access to one. However, there are numerous charters that offer accessible boating or fishing excursions to give you the full experience. 

Farmer’s Markets
Summer is a perfect time to get out and enjoy what your local community has to offer with its farmer’s markets. Most communities now have a weekly market scheduled where you can try new foods, buy locally sourced produce, baked goods, crafts, live music and more! 

County and State Fairs
Check out your local county and state fair websites to learn all the ways you can enjoy the fair experience! From accessible transportation, mobility equipment rentals, and wheelchair friendly activities, fairs are a great way to try new things, eat fun food, and spend time with friends and family. 

Getting Your Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Ready for Any Season

If you already own a wheelchair accessible vehicle, be sure to visit your local mobility dealer for Preventative Maintenance Inspection (PMI). This is important to do on a regular basis to ensure proper function and enjoyment of your vehicle.  You can read more about PMIs with this helpful article from BLVD.com.

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for BLVD.com, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
