How to Explore San Francisco With Wheelchairs and Strollers

With these travel tips and destinations in mind, you are sure to have a wonderful visit to the City by the Bay.

Anyone who has traveled with a stroller or by wheelchair knows that it can be a challenge to figure out what neighborhoods and attractions you can access in a new city, making travel planning a nightmare. So, if you are looking to plan a vacation that is accessible to everyone in your family or travel party, look no further than San Francisco. While San Francisco might be one of the hilliest cities in the world (second after La Paz, Bolivia), it is also one of the most accessible with lots of wide sidewalks and ramps making way for strollers and wheelchairs. “San Francisco has a lot to offer everyone, including those who are limited to wheelchair accessible areas,” says Cory Lee, accessible travel expert and owner of CurbFreeCoryLee. Cory was able to see many attractions using his motorized wheelchair and had a great time. My mother, sister, and I took to the streets of San Francisco with our kids, strollers in hand, to find out for ourselves where you can go with your own four wheels and the whole family. These family-friendly spots are easy to explore with strollers and wheelchairs, so everyone can join in on the fun.
