Natalie’s Accessible Travel Memory
We asked Natalie to tell us about an accessible travel experience and she was more than happy to share about the Crowne Plaza (Hollywood Beach) telling us:
“In 2014 we visited the Crowne Plaza (Hollywood Beach), Hollywood, FL. It was nice because this was my summer hangout spot with my family for a couple of years and I loved that their pool had a beach entrance and they had a wheelchair made of pvc pipes that took me all the way to the end of the entrance (into the pool)”.
Learning about places that create special accessible travel memories makes us extremely happy at Handiscover HQ!

What is Spina Bifida?
Spina Bifida happens when a baby is in the womb and the spinal column does not close all of the way. Every day, about 8 babies born in the United States have Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine. For more information visit http://spinabifidaassociation.org
