With a host of shopping choices, the Golden Gate bridge, Alcatraz, Pier 39 and, of course, its famous sea lion population, the city by the bay never fails to impress.
There are a lot of flat areas in San Francisco, including parks and a bay-long promenade to explore. This, coupled with the city’s wide choice of wheelchair-friendly public transport, makes getting around the city very easy for wheelchair users. Drop curbs are found at the end of each street (which is the case for all major US cities) and hotels are held to a high level of accessibility under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). The ferries can be accessed to venture to Sausalito or visit Alcatraz Island, which both have good disabled access. Please note, however, there are some steep inclines on Alcatraz.
So, whether you want to visit the buffalo in Golden Gate Park, stroll around the lake at the Palace of Fine Arts, or walk the Golden Gate Bridge, there is so much to see and do in San Francisco.
