Special Needs Patrol

  • Going Carless, or Almost Carless Can Free Up Your Vacation

    I drive around doing errands a lot these days.  Although I love my car, I long to get away from it while I vacation with my family.  Fact is that I have sight limitations which makes driving in unfamiliar areas more challenging.  That, combined with whining teenagers, and high parking fees has me looking for Car Free vacations.  Beyond Orlando, New York, Las Vegas and beach options I found to gems I recommend to people.

  • Morgans Wonderland – Wonderfully Accessible

    How would you feel about going to an amusement park where you, your kids and grandkids could participate, and ride on every ride regardless of mobility or other disability issues?  Well, Morgan’s Wonderland in San Antonio Texas is just the place.  The amusement park was built specifically for those who have mobility, sensory, sight, hearing and intellectual challenges join in a fun day.  The focus is not to be especially for special needs people, but to be inclusive for EVERYONE.

  • A “HOT” New Item for Travel: Hot Logic

    We are always on the hunt for new products that work well for our traveling readers, so when I heard about something that pilots and flight attendants are raving about, I knew I needed to check it out. Food is always a main item on the list when we take a trip. Whether we are camping, taking a road trip or getting on a plane to some exotic destination, food seems to be on the top of our minds.

  • Exploring the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

    Are you a fan of Harry Potter?  If the answer is YES you may want to check out Universal Studios in Orlando Florida.  Universal Studios is located less than 30 miles away from Disney World, and only a couple miles from Sea World so many people visit Universal Studios and Island of Adventure.

  • Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party - Filled with Holiday Lights and Music

    In early November I attended the first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  This event occurs a number of times between early November and December.

  • Love Boat: Why Cruises Are So Popular with Anyone Who Has Physical Limitations

    Have you ever dreamed about going on the LOVE BOAT for a trip of a life time?  Many people have really become more interested in the cruising options ever sense Captain Stuving and his crew of helpful staff entered our televisions in the 1970s.

  • Flying Frontier Style

    A few weeks ago I decided to go to a conference in Princeton NJ.  I was going to drive in order to save money.  This felt at first like a great adventure until I checked map quest directions.  It turns out Princeton NJ is 10 hour drive from home.  This would have been okay except that I was driving alone, and am blind in my right eye.

  • Checking out the Sights and Sounds of Locust Grove

    In the middle of a neighborhood in Louisville Kentucky is a Historic Home… Locust Grove.  The home was built in the 1790’s, and is on a beautiful piece of property.  General George Rodgers Clark came to this home, which was his sister’s, when his health was failing him.  He had a bedroom on the first floor of the house.  It is said that General Clark spent many hours sitting on the back porch looking at the Ohio River.

  • See New York City By Boat

    Last weekend my husband Doug and I went to NYC.  It was his first visit.  I was in a training in Stamford, so we took some time to see the sights in New York City.  The city can be, and is often very exhausting, so on Sunday morning (Doug’s last day) we were looking for a more laid back experience.

  • The Benefits of Going on a Private Tour

    You are in a new location trying to get the most out of your limited time to explore the area.  Although everyone wants to go explore 1 person has extreme food allergies, and another travel companion cannot walk far.  This means you have to miss out in seeing the Archaeological sites, eating authentic food, and seeing more than the touristy places on a right?


    It is time to look into setting up a PRIVATE TOUR
