Utah Provides Information to Help Disabled Travelers

The Utah Office of Tourism has published new information to help travelers with disabilities find information about services such as car rentals, the location of campsites and trails compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and accessibility options at state and national parks.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about the new information. Below are excerpts.

“We want travelers of all ability levels to have the best planning information available to them,” said Tourism Office Managing Director Leigh von der Esch of the publication “Accessible Utah One-Sheet Guide.” This is the 19th “one sheeter” created by the office to highlight things that might appeal to potential tourists, from dinosaur and Olympic legacy sites to destination spas and renewable energy projects.

The one sheeters are available at state and local welcome centers and on the Tourism Office’s website,

“Our national parks are some of the most accessible in the nation,” said von der Esch. “Combine that with world-class facilities like the National Ability Center [in Park City], the state’s wonderful outfitters and nonprofit organizations, and you see how interest in adaptive recreation and sports has been building since the 2002 Winter Paralympics.”
