ACCESSIBLE ATTRACTIONS: Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona
Our ratings are...
Fully Accessible - You can access all of the attraction, with no problem, in any type of wheelchair.
Mostly Accessible - You can access most of the attraction, and all of the important parts of it, with your wheelchair.
Partially Accessible - You can access a good deal of the attraction but some parts are inaccessible and some important parts you'll miss.
Inaccessible - Kind of speaks for itself, avoid if you're in a wheelchair.
Here's the Valley of the Sun - Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona...
Papago Park - Fully Accessible. Great wheelchair-friendly hiking with giant, scenic rock outcroppings. Avoid when hot.
Phoenix Zoo - Fully Accessibe. Use the lift-equipped accessible tram which allows you to get on and off as much as you want to fully explore the facility.
Old Scottsdale - Mostly Accessible. Boutique shops mix with burger stands and cowboy stores. The Sugar Bowl not only has great ice cream, it was comic stip artist Bill Keane's favorite place.
Castles 'n Coaster - Mostly Inaccessible. Cramped quarters mean you won't even be able to roll around the state's only thrill ride park.
Rawhide - Partially Accessible. A western theme park known as much for it's great cowboy barbecue as it is for the entertainment.
Taliesin West - Partially Accessible. Frank Lloyd Wright's western outpost is much easier to visit in a wheelchair than his Chicago neighborhood of Oak Park.
