Best of 2010 - Accessible Destination

There were two strong contenders for this year's title.  Both had great accessible transportation and nice, compact downtown areas to walk around in.  Both had great accessible sports venues and both had a nice variety of accessible hotel rooms.  It was close, and St. Louis was almost chosen but it loses out to our winner due to not having as much to do in its downtown area and also the wheelchair unfriendly Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Park (the Gateway Arch) and riverfront.

Our winner is the capitol of the Golden State: Sacramento, California.  Great accessible light rail service augmented by a good bus system serves this area well.  In the downtown area are many sights to see and activities to do.  We especially like Old Sacramento on the riverfront (easily accessible), the Capitol Building, Sutter's Fort, and especially walking across the golden Tower Bridge to Raley Field to watch the Sacramento River Cats play baseball.

See our report on this year's winner here:  Sacramento Trip Report.

Congratulations to this year's winner.
