Niagara Falls

With July 26th being the 26th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (a law that made our country much more accessible for people of all abilities), it's the perfect time to explore what's accessible in all of New York State. As a travel blogger who happens to be in a wheelchair, I'm always happily surprised at how accessible the state of New York really is. So here are some of New York State's best things to do if you or someone you are traveling with is in a wheelchair.

Travel to Schenectady for a weekend rich in history, art, and fun. It is here where Thomas Edison founded the General Electric Company, where New York State named its first historic district, and it’s home to Proctors Theatre, a former vaudeville house where countless famous artists have performed.

Newburgh is one of the best destinations for motorcycle enthusiasts. Besides being able to cruise along the scenic Route 9W from New York City to get there, easy riders can also get their gear fix at the Motorcyclepedia Museum and the Orange County Choppers headquarters. Speaking of headquarters, on the history side of things, the city served as HQ to the Continental Army during the American Revolution and offers many historical attractions and sites to help make up a unique winter weekend itinerary for motorcycle lovers and history buffs alike.

 Frederic Remington Art Museum

Head north to the St. Lawrence River, which forms the watery border between New York State and Canada, to take in the breathtaking scenery of the Thousand Islands region—such as the nearly 2,000 islands, the bright blue bays of Lake Ontario, sparkling rivers and hundreds of miles of picturesque coastline—and visit the lasting tribute to the cowboys, soldiers, and Native Americans of the Old West at the Frederic Remington Art Museum. There are countless things to see and enjoy in the neighboring towns of Watertown, Ogdensburg, and Canton.

Lovers of comedy should make it a point to visit Jamestown, home of the newly built National Comedy Center, the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum, and Desilu Studios. In this small town, there are plenty of attractions and historic sites to keep visitors busy and entertained for a weekend.

Want to see one of the world's finest collections of modern and contemporary art and get sprayed by waterfalls all in one day? Take a weekend trip to Buffalo, which was named one of the world's top 52 spots to visit in 2018 by The New York Times. Niagara Falls' dramatic cascades are spectacular in any season and Buffalo’s night scene is just as vibrant as its art. As a perfect complement to seeing this natural wonder, you can take in some of the best that Buffalo has to offer, from world-class art and architecture to entertainment and foodeven if you’ve only got a weekend.
