Fun and Wheelchair-Accessible Chicagoland Activities
City travel and activities can be pretty daunting for our community with accessibility needs and those taking care of them. But that might not be the case in the Home of the Bean where there’s plenty of family-friendly things to see and do for holiday visitors and the wheelchair-using sightseers.
Definitely one of the most accessible and fun places to go for kids to visit in Chicago is Millennium Park with its different attractions such as a roller rink or ice skating rink depending on the season.
Within the park, the must see spot in Chicago has got to be The Cloud Gate, lovingly called “The Bean” by locals because of its distinctive shape.
(Sears Tower) Willis Tower Sky Deck
Skydeck Chicago is a wheelchair-accessible observation deck on the 103rd floor. Being the highest observation deck in the United States, it offers an amazing view of the city and surrounding areas. The all-glass boxes give first timers a once in a lifetime sort of experience.
It might make you think twice before rolling in with your wheelchair on glass but it is accessible for a reason, with the glass boxes able to withstand 5 tons of weight! Learn More about their ADA-compliant protocols >>
