Experience Virginia's Accessibility

A woman who is blind spins flax into thread at the Frontier Culture Museum in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Nearby, a man who is deaf feels the vibrations as a fiddler plays a lively Appalachian tune. A girl in a wheelchair watches a costumed interpreter plant seeds in a field to learn what early settlers grew for food.

At the other end of the state in Tidewater, a mature traveler in a motorized scooter enjoys a trip through Spanish moss-draped cypress swamps along the wheelchair-accessible trail at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach. A teenager using a white cane stops to read a Braille marker before continuing on through the fragrance garden at Norfolk Botanical Garden. In Central Virginia at Lynchburg's Amazement Square, a deaf child uncovers artifacts at Indian Island after learning about archaeology through signing interpreters.

For outdoor recreation enthusiasts, Virginia has adaptive sports opportunities including alpine skiing instruction for people with a variety of abilities as well as accessible fishing and hunting opportunities. State and national parks in the Old Dominion offer accessible boat ramps, swimming pools with lifts and cabins with roll-in showers.

No matter what age or ability, travelers looking for a vacation destination find numerous options throughout Virginia. Ramps, lifts, elevators, audio tours, and captioned movies or videos at Virginia attractions and historic sites help meet a variety of travelers needs.
