“Oh my goodness, I can’t say enough wonderful things about this company. What a great idea, renting wheelchair vans! They made our trip to Disney World such a great experience. The van was practically brand new. It operated so easily. I had never operated a wheelchair van before and their helpful videos showed me exactly what to do. I would recommend this company to anyone who has a family member in a wheelchair.”
“The van was at the airport waiting for my arrival. It was clean and although it had a manual ramp and a manual door, to my surprise, I was still able to operate it very easily. Loved the people on the phone too. Very professional and helpful.”

Florida is the third most populous state in the United States, with a population of over 21 million people. It has the largest shoreline in the contiguous United States, with 1,350 miles of coastline. In the Pre-modern era, Florida was home to various Native American groups for at least 14,000 years before the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon became the first known European to make landfall. Native groups local to Florida include the Ais, Apalachee, Calusa, Creek, Miccosukee, Seminole, Timucua, and Yemassee. Florida’s economy is the fourth largest in the nation, with its most prominent industry being tourism with its many beaches, resorts, and amusement parks. Florida boasts a humid subtropical climate and a true tropical climate that yields high temperatures in the summer and mild to warm temperatures in the winter. Florida is connected via a 1,495-mile interstate system and 10,601 miles of non-interstate highways. Primary interstate routes connecting the state include I-4, I-10, I-75, and I-95.

Florida’s Top Wheelchair-friendly Tourist Attractions
Miami is a diverse and vibrant city off the coast of Florida that offers many sightseeing options and tourist destinations that are wheelchair accessible. No trip to Miami is complete without visiting its famous beaches, and the City of Miami Beach offers manual and motorized beach wheelchairs for free. The Miami Zoo is another popular tourist attraction as it is the only zoo in America with a sub-tropical climate which allows it to host many unique animals from around the world. The zoo is very wheelchair friendly, and monorails and trams can accommodate up to two wheelchairs at a time. In addition to these two locations, the city offers many museums, galleries, and shopping experiences that are wheelchair accessible.
Walt Disney World is one of the most visited vacation resorts in the world and is comprised of four theme parks, two water parks, 31 themed resort hotels, nine non-Disney hotels, several golf courses, and other entertainment venues. The resort property covers 39 square miles of land just outside of Orlando. Walt Disney World offers many attractions that are accessible to wheelchair users, as well as guides and maps detailing the many experiences guests can have while remaining in their wheelchairs. These guides also highlight experiences wheelchair users can have with assistance transferring from their wheelchair. Walt Disney World also offers Electric Conveyance Vehicle Rentals to help guests travel long distances throughout the park.
The Everglades National Park is a 1.5-million-acre wetland preserve on the state’s southern tip. The Everglades feature abundant and exotic wildlife and is the largest tropical wilderness in the United States. The Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center, Royal Palm Visitor Center, Flamingo Visitor Center, Shark Valley Visitor Center, and Gulf Coast Visitor Center are all wheelchair accessible. The Park also has a variety of maintained trails that are either paved or boardwalks that are great for wheelchair users. The Anhinga Trail, Gumbo Limbo Trail, Pineland Trail, and the Pa-hey-okee Overlook are highly accessible and less than one mile in length, so traveling them is not overly strenuous. In addition to trails, the park does feature campgrounds with accessible campsites, including one backcountry option in the Pearl Bay Chickee site that requires a four-hour canoe trip and features a large chemical toilet and railings on several sides of the platform.
The Kennedy Space Center is the visitor center at NASA’s space center in Merritt Island, FL. It houses displays and exhibits of historic spacecraft and other significant memorabilia.

It is Florida’s southernmost point and is a popular destination for cruise ships, although it can be accessed by driving from the mainland on the Overseas Highway. Key West offers many lodging options with specific wheelchair accommodations like roll-in showers and pull-under sinks. The Conch Tour Train is a 75-minute streetcar tour ride that gives an overview of the city’s layout and history. Not every train car has wheelchair and mobility scooter access, but there is always at least one wheelchair-accessible car with a boarding ramp and wheelchair tie-downs.
