Sometimes you need more information to plan a trip than just knowing which hotels, restaurants, and attractions are accessible for you. When you leave home it can be overwhelming to figure out how to find a caregiver, interpretive services, or other general accessible travel resources like renting a properly equipped car.

If you know of a resource that would be useful to others please send it our way!
