It is no surprise that
in a country as vast as the USA, there are thousands of wonderful museums to
explore. So where do you start? And most importantly, which are the most
accessible for those of us who use a mobility scooter?
Well, to help you out,
Quingo Scooters has picked out the five most accessible American museums. Here
are our top tips.
The California Academy of Science
We love this museum.
California is blessed with plenty of wonderful museums and art galleries, but
there is something special about this place.
Great weather, a fantastic standard of living and plenty of art and culture. It all adds up to making Melbourne one of the most desirable places to live in the world. It’s no surprise that the Australian city regularly ranks among the most ‘livable’ cities on the planet.
And while we’re not
suggesting that you sell up and move there straightaway, it certainly makes for
a great getaway. It is packed with plenty to keep you busy, from wonderful
museums and art galleries to fantastic places to eat.
The state of Oregon is
a wonderful place to explore. It’s full of wild trails and stunning scenery.
But we think the highly accessible city of Portland is a real jewel in the
The ‘City of Roses’ is
a varied place, full of friendly people and rich experiences for the visitor.
From beautiful gardens to delicious street food, this diverse city makes for a great
getaway. So, here is Quingo Scooter’s guide to the very best of Portland,
Venice is uniquely
beautiful. This magical city is famous the world over for its canals and
historic bridges. And yet these attractions are also what put many people off
visiting with their mobility scooter. To many visitors with mobility issues,
Venice might seem like too much of a challenge.
We think that is a real
shame, as you are missing out on one of the world’s most fascinating getaways. Despite
what you might think, Venice is surprisingly accessible. Over half the city is
accessible without having to cross any of the bridges.
Moscow feels like a
city built for giants. The scale of the place is incredible. The roads are wide.
The buildings are monumental and the parks are vast. And then, there is also the
great weight of history in this ancient city.
Surely there are few other
places (Berlin perhaps?) where so many momentous events have taken place. You
can feel it in every brick and stone, red star and golden dome.
But then this can also
be a surprisingly accessible city too.
