Accessible Summertime Activities
Warm weather, sun-filled days, and the smell of backyard barbeques – it looks like summer is nearly here. After months of harsh Ohio winter temperatures and shortened daylight hours, summertime brings sunny days, fresh showers and lots fun activities with it. If you’ve been looking for some fun, wheelchair accessible activities to take part in this season, the following are great ideas for folks of all ages to enjoy.
Enjoy the Outdoors
With Ohio’s warmer temperatures, it is the perfect season to spend some time outdoors. Pay your local zoo or animal sanctuary a visit – the Columbus Zoo and Toledo Zoo are inexpensive, fun and not to mention accessible. Another option is to take a ride down to the beach at Lake Erie, or feed the ducks at the nearest pond or lake – there are many inexpensive and accessible ways to experience the great outdoors in the summertime. For our Ohio readers or those in nearby states, http://consumer.discoverohio.com/ is a great site to visit to see a full list of events and attractions to choose from.
Smell the Roses
Even if you wouldn’t label your thumb as “green,” gardening can be a relaxing and rewarding pastime. Although there are some temperamental varieties of plants that require special care, there are countless options available for those of us not quite as adept in the garden. From chrysanthemums to lilacs, these beautiful flowers blossom especially well in the summer. These easy to care for plants can add color and a refreshing look to your home or garden.
Expand Your Boundaries
Whether you’re taking the kids to an exciting summer vacation destination or treating yourself to a vacation, traveling during the summer can prove to be a great time. Ohio offers a variety of beautiful vacation spots and if you need accessible transportation to get to your destination, M.C. Mobility Systems is your go-to source for rentals, new and used vehicles. Renting an accessible van is a great way to save putting miles on your own van. It’s also helpful if you are in need of a van that provides wheelchair accessibility if your vehicle doesn’t.
A new season is always a good excuse to switch up your routine, and what better way to do so than with some accessible activities fit for the whole family?
