Why aren’t there any vacation rentals that are handicapped accessible?? I am wheelchair bound, but very independent, I simply cannot use a place with 1 or more steps. I get so tired of seeing ads for someplace I would LOVE to visit, and then find out NOTHING is handicapped accessible.

Avatar Tammy Johnson says:

All of the VA State Parks that have cabins, have one or more that are handicap accessible.
