“Great customer service the vehicle was very spacious inside easy to maneuver love the passenger removal seat option so I can pull the wheelchair into that space and plenty of safety straps I will be renting from them again.”
“We recently had a van delivered to Scottsdale directly to our home there. We called on 4/6/2019 for a rental needed the same day and needing it to be delivered because of mobility issues with my husband being an amputee. The owner Ron was already on a delivery to Tucson and unable to bring to us as we requested and NEEDED. We spoke with a very kind, and informative CSA and she told us rest assured she would make this delivery and rental happen for us EVEN if she had to send her husband to deliver it to us. Well the woman’s husband showed up at our home to deliver the van to us with ALL 3 of his kids in the van (talk about multi tasking), his name was Robert. Robert went over the vehicle with myself and my wife and did the check out with us, he also showed us how to properly pull the manual ramp out and access the inside with my scooter. I am a disabled vet amputee and they also gave me a 10% Veteran discount because of this. Wonderful Company, Wonderful People, Hands down the best experience I have had with getting a vehicle of any type for my transport needs and I have a picture with Robert and his wife to prove it! Thank you again Wheeler’s and know I will be back!”
“Great experience from beginning to end the van was new and clean, the staff was helpful and great to my family!! We will be back.”

Arizona is the 48th state to be admitted into the United States of America and was the last of the contiguous states to gain statehood. It is the 6th largest state and the 14th most populous. Before the modern era, Arizona was inhabited by many ancient Native American civilizations. Modern-day Arizona is home to 27 federally recognized Native American tribes, including the Navajo Nation which is the largest tribe in the United States. Arizona is known for its unique geological and ecological features. There are 24 National Park Service (NPS) units. NPS units include Arizona National Parks, National Monuments, and National Recreation Areas, including the Grand Canyon National Park– one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Due to the state’s large size and varying elevations, Arizona has many different localized climate conditions. At lower elevations, you’ll find desert climates with mild winters and hot summers, while high elevations in the northern third of the state offer colder winters and more mild summers. The state is well connected via interstate highways, with I-17 and I-19 traveling north-south and I-8, I-10, and I-40 traveling east-west.
Arizona’s Top Wheelchair-friendly Tourist Attractions
The Grand Canyon is one of Arizona’s premier tourist attractions that offers some options and accommodations for visitors with disabilities. Hiking in the Grand Canyon, on its steep and rocky trails may be challenging for individuals with specific disabilities to navigate. The Bright Angel trail and the North Kaibab Trail are the smoothest trails and– for the adventurous– offer the most wheelchair-accessible descents. All shuttle buses in the park can accommodate wheelchairs up to 30 inches wide and 48 inches long and offer a ramp for easy boarding and deboarding. Driving around the canyon rim is an accessible activity for everyone. Desert View Drive, along the south rim, offers four wheelchair-accessible overlooks. Travelers with disabilities can request accessibility permits at the park’s entrance gates which allow them to drive on roads usually closed to private vehicles like Hermit Road. Unlike some of the old buildings built before accessibility regulations, the Grand Canyon Visitor Center is fully wheelchair accessible and has a paved walkway to Mather Point.
Sedona is a tourist location known for its beautiful red rock formations. Many of these formations are visible from scenic highways and accessible viewpoints where you can pull off, take pictures, and enjoy the scenery. Sedona offers many trails to hike, and a few are wheelchair friendly. Oak Creek Trail is a 1.3-mile trail that is almost barrier-free; there are only three sections that may require some assistance. For this reason, all-terrain tires are recommended. The parking lot is paved and has one van-accessible, designated space with striped access aisles.
Bell Rock Pathway is another trail considered wheelchair accessible, however, this trail is a moderately difficult route. It is a 2.8 mile out and back trail with a natural surface of dirt, sand, and rocks. The most accessible portion of the trail is the first 1.2 miles, where the grade is mostly gentle. After 1.2 miles, there are steep grades that may require assistance. There is at least 1 designated accessible space in the paved parking lot off of 179 at the south end of the trail. It is van-accessible with striped access aisles.
Downtown Phoenix is a tourist destination that offers a wide variety of ADA-compliant attractions and accommodations. The city provides many barrier-free urban paths, nature walks, and hiking trails like the Desert Botanical Garden, Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area, and the Judith Tunell Accessible trail. Phoenix also offers unique indoor recreational activities with Ability360. This one-of-a-kind facility offers adaptive gym equipment, an ultra-accessible pool, a rock climbing wall with accommodations that can host most anyone, and a collection of sport and activity-specific wheelchairs. In addition to these year-round facilities, Phoenix hosts a variety of seasonal and temporary activities like art walks, music festivals, and sporting events. Getting around the city is made easy through the Valley Metro Rail service, which connects 38 stations around the 28-mile system. Every Valley Metro Rail vehicle is accessible to riders using wheelchairs or other mobility devices.
Old Town Scottsdale is the downtown area of Scottsdale that offers boutique shopping, art and jewelry, luxury shopping, museums, and a variety of dining and nightlife. Old Town Scottsdale has of the largest malls in the country, the Scottsdale Fashion Square, which offers indoor, wheelchair-accessible shopping. Old Town Scottsdale also hosts the weekly Scottsdale Art Walk. This tradition is hosted every Thursday evening and is a time when all member galleries open their doors to the public and showcase art from local artists to the public. The art walk takes place in the Scottsdale art district along Main street. Participants proceed at their own pace, past gallery storefronts, in a beautifully decorated area downtown.

Bisbee is an old mining town founded in 1880. The town was built into the side of a mountain so many of the streets are narrow and can be steep. Despite this, Bisbee still offers wheelchair-accessible tourism activities. Main Street Bisbee is reasonably level to allow for window shopping and sightseeing. Many of the shops and restaurants downtown are wheelchair accessible. The Bisbee Museum grants wheelchair access through a side door, so someone must first check in at the front desk, but it offers a look into the town’s history as a mining town. The famous Bisbee Mercantile building contains many shops and a nice restaurant and coffee shop. The historical building was updated and is wheelchair accessible, including a large commercial elevator to the second floor and an accessible public restroom.
