Many of New York State’s world-class attractions are accessible to and offer specialty programming for travelers with accessibility needs. From wheelchair-accessible walkways above the Adirondack forest treetops at the Wild Center and Wild Walk to a first-in-the-nation Autism Nature Trail at Letchworth State Park, New York is a welcoming destination for visitors with a wide range of abilities and interests. Whether it’s an accessible amusement park ride at LEGOLAND New York, the chance to see an ASL or audio-described Broadway performance, or a thrilling adaptive skiing experience at mountains across the state, you can find it all here. As we add more accessible offerings to this section of our website, we'd also love to hear from you.
