12.3. Additional Programs or Resources
Accessible Kauai was started in an effort to make your trip to Kauai a little more enjoyable if you are a disabled or wheelchair traveler. One of the things that makes Kauai so special is the lack of big city features but that also brings some accessibility issues. There are some spots where the sidewalk just ends or there is no sidewalk at all or maybe this business is not quite up to ADA standards yet. Those are some things to consider when coming to more rural Kauai but if you can deal with that then there are a lot of great things to enjoy here.
