The Grove in LA

The Grove in Los Angeles

Considered by many of those who are physically challenged as one of the most accessible cities in the world, Los Angeles has several top attractions that are totally visitor-friendly. Here are few of Rent It Today’s favorites:

Walt Disney Concert Hall – Home of the LA Philharmonic, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is a cultural and architectural landmark in Los Angeles. The venue offers seating for individuals using wheelchairs and their companions and escorted wheelchair transport to and from the theater. In addition, patrons may also borrow assisted listening devices at no charge.

Universal Studios Hollywood – Many of the theme parks’ rides, attractions, and shows are wheelchair accessible and a detailed informational brochure for guests with disabilities is available online. The park also provides sign language interpreters and complimentary assistive-listening devices and attraction scripts at the Guest Relations office.

Aquarium of the Pacific – A top attraction, the Aquarium of the Pacific allows guests in wheelchairs to roll right up to the tanks to check out the hundreds of different types of sea creatures on display. The aquarium also provides complimentary wheelchairs and offers free audio tours for individuals that are visually impaired, as well as show scripts for those with hearing impairments.

The Grove at Farmers Market – This brick streets and sidewalks make this popular spot easy to navigate for guests using wheelchairs. The Grove also features plenty of handicapped parking and handicap-assisted doors. In addition, The Grove’s trolley features a wheelchair lift to take visitors to the Farmers Market next door.

Need help getting from one attraction to another? The Los Angeles Metro Transit Authority buses and rail systems can accommodate all types of mobility supports.
