Best of 2012 - Accessible Destination

Bleeding over into the New Year a bit here to bring you our final "Best of 2012" award. Today, it's the best destination.

The three of us here at The World on Wheels debated this one for quite awhile before coming up with the winner. Although Minneapolis has superior accessible transit, Milwaukee is just a ton more fun so we're going with Milwaukee, Wisconsin as this year's best accessible destination.

No light rail or subway here (although a trolley is in the works) but the bus system goes everywhere and is wheelchair accessible.The very nice Riverwalk along the Milwaukee River downtown takes you to most of the destinations you'd like to see and is completely accessible.

We never had a bar or restaurant we went to where the chair wouldn't fit and an accessible restroom was always nearby.

You can see our reports on Milwaukee here.

It helps that the people here are very nice and accommodating. It's a friendly town and you'll quickly make some new ones.

Congratulations, Milwaukee...you're our pick for the best wheelchair accessible destination for 2012.
