Gives me new hope! May 4, 2008
As a person struggling with PPMS (primary progressive multiple sclerosis), I was depressed by what I thought was the reality that I would not be able to travel. Not so! This book makes visiting all the places I've wanted to see doable. Thanks Candy Harrington for this book and your enabling outlook on travel.

It arrived in decent shape and with fair promptness. A better description of the emphasis of the book would have aided selection.
Travel Agents Need This Book Feb 11, 2008
101 ACCESSIBLE VACATIONS BY CANDY B. HARRINGTON is a practical and innovative travel guidebook for the physically challenged traveler. Candy is well known in the field of accessible travel and is the editor of Emerging Horizons Magazine. She discusses the previously held theory that all disabled travelers should go to Disney World for vacations because it is know for being well planned for the handicapped tourist. But not everyone likes theme parks, so there must be many alternatives, of which most travel agents are unaware. In this book she tells of many, many different choices for ideal holidays for anyone who has difficulty traveling. She details holidays of every kind in places in many states and in several international destinations. This is a wonderful book for any handicapped traveler and for all travel agents.
Lots of Great Information Jan 22, 2008
If you like to travel and are challenged physically, this book is well worth adding to your library. Each of the 101 vacation chapters is full of information that is otherwise hard to find. Any one such item is worth the price of the book. That said, only about 3 pages are devoted to each vacation, so don't expect it to be complete. It's a great start to begin further research or a great resource to add knowledge about a place (or a place nearby) that you're already planning to go to. The book is organized by activity rather than geographically and the table of contents uses chapter titles that often don't tell you the geographic location of the vacation. I found it helpful to write the locations in the table of contents for later reference.
