So many of us take the travel experience for granted.

But 19% of Americans have a disability — sight, hearing or mobility — and that can often make their travel experience a serious challenge, or in some cases, an impossibility.

But help is on the way.

Check out AbleThrive, a great site that contains real time destination reviews for travelers with disabilities.

Are you looking for great handicapped accessible accomodations? Check out Handiscover with nearly 25,000 listings in 50 countries.

Then there’s accessibleGO, which helps travelers with disabilities with information on everything from cruises to ground transportation, including where to find ramped access and even menus in braille.
