If you’re asking about Honolulu, it’s no more or no less wheelchair friendly than any other mid- to large-sized U.S. city. Perhaps even more so. The ADA is national, after all. I’d think you’d have few problems on Oahu.
If you mean more rural areas or islands, there could be fewer resources, so fewer accommodations.
But again, most any business is ADA compliant, from parking to ramps. Just be aware that as a state with many historical buildings, many may be exempt!
Yes, Hawaii is wheelchair friendly — mainly because of ADA access to businesses/hotels/restaurants. Maui or the big island could also make a good destination. Most areas you would probably visit are flat, pedestrian friendly, and easy to get around.
While its hard to answer without knowing specifics, with a little help, even the beach is a possibility!
Thank you guys! That’s really good to know =)
I was a supervisor for Aloha Airlines and I have to tell you that Hawaii is very wheelchair friendly. We always had wheelchair passengers and people are very helpful to assist. Hope you have an awesome trip.
i went to hawaii with my grandmother who was in a wheel chair, and i would say the buildings were wheelchair accessible, but it was very hard to get around the city just because a majority of the attractions you need to walk to (sand=bad wheelchair surface), however, i’m sure you could still make it work if you had people to help you.
