The mecca of architecture lovers, Barcelona's range of gothic to modernist sights offers something to everyone! Plus, Barcelona is largely cobblestone-free and covered by public transit, making it one of Europe's most accessible cities!

If you prefer a thrill ride to a history lesson, Denver is the place for you! While the city itself boasts a relaxed atmosphere, the mountains just beyond offer a plethora of fun physical activities and there are plenty of agencies that offer adaptive skiing, snowboarding, and more!

If you prefer a more relaxed experience, Playa del Carmen is for you! While I've already talked about exploring the peninsula of Yucatan in this blog post, I want to bring special attention to Playa del Carmen. This beach is quieter and overall friendlier than it's neighbor Cancun. This beach is no stranger to tourists so special amenities and wheelchairs abound!
