Having trouble thinking about accessible spring break spots? We asked a few families from around the country who have had great experiences so you and your whole family can sit back, relax and enjoy!

Myrtle Beach, SC

Marina Grand Dunnes has amazing condo accessible rooms and it is minutes away from the 1.2 mile-long Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade, known as Broadway at the Beach. Broadway at the Beach is also home to the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. It is a 200-foot Ferris wheel that can hold up to 6 people in a capsule and is fully wheelchair accessible. We also suggest visiting Ripley’s Aquarium while you’re there! It was voted Myrtle Beach’s top attraction and is an 85,000 square foot aquarium containing several different exhibits.
