sqbr: Asterix-like magnifying glass over Perth, Western Australia (australia 2)
[personal profile] sqbr posting in [community profile] access_fandom
My partner and I are pondering a visit to the US for a holiday. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and fairly significant mobility issues: I can't walk very far, up more than a couple of stairs, or up steep hills, and will plausibly be hiring a mobility scooter.

Do people have recs (or anti-recs) for cities or sites that are likely to be interesting to two Australian geeks and are particularly amenable to these kinds of constraints?

Any good sf cons that are accessibility friendly and held in interesting cities? (My partner is alas not convinced that he would find Wiscon very interesting)

Our plans are very tentative at this stage, so any and all suggestions or ideas are welcome. Currently pondered locations include San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, New York, Las Vegas, Chicago and Boston.

Thirding the caution re: New York -- most of the subway stations don't even have elevators. In theory you can take buses instead, & many of them are supposedly accessible, but I've heard some stories about bus drivers being unwilling to pick up people in wheelchairs, etc. (then again, on the flip side, I've also seen bus drivers be v. accommodating & helpful)
