Wheelchair Friendly Chicago
Chicago offers a lot of possibilities when it comes to activities that you can take part in with a wheelchair. With this article in your bookmarks(and possibly AC medtran at your service), nothing can prevent you from enjoying the Windy City.
Love for Skyscrapers
The sunshine is calling you outside, and you are to choose among a number places you can visit. For starters, are you in the mood for a majestic view? You can visit Skydeck Chicago at Willis Tower, and if you are daring enough try peering over „The Ledge“ and take some neat pictures of Windy Citi beneath your feet. If glass floors aren’t your cup of tea, but you would still like to bask in the lovely view: there is always the option of 360 Chicago observatory, with the bonus of a great lake in your amazing photos!
The Great Outdoors
Prefer something a bit closer to the ground? Perfectly understandable. Give Chicago Botanic Garden a go. Or Lincoln Park Zoo. Both these little pockets of nature are free of charge to enter. It is also unavoidable to mention some of Chicago’s captivating parks that stand at your disposal. For example, Millennium Park with its “bean” or Navy Pier simply can not be avoided when out and about in Windy City
Expand Your Horizons
The Art Institute of Chicago is always at the top of all kinds of lists when it comes to Chicago and places to visit. That ranking is well deserved because when you enter you always have something to admire. At the Museum of Science and Industry, you can take part in all sorts of experiments, exhibits, and events. The Morton Arboretum also offers a wide range of activities.
Stars & Sealife
If you want to know more about the water-based life forms, good people of Shedd Aquarium are just waiting for you to stop by. But again, if your interests stretch far beyond our lovely planet Adler Planetarium will spark your interest. Experiencing any of these institutions will not be tainted by limited access.
Plays and Flicks at Your Disposal
Chicago presents you with a lot of prospects for entertainment when it comes to plays and movies.
You can take your pick between The Chicago Theatre, Oriental Theatre, Auditorium Theatre or Cadillac Palace Theatre. Immerse yourself in a drama or musical of your choosing, without worrying about the fact you are in a wheelchair because all of these places have got you covered. If you are in the mood for motion pictures: the freshest titles can be watched at AMC Showplace Galewood 14 or New 400 Theater.
Deep dish pizza anyone? After all, you are in Chicago! You can grab a delicious bite to eat at Giordano’s, Pizzeria Uno or Lou Malnati’s. Sink your teeth into a thick crust and enjoy the melted cheese or any other topping that you may desire, without any additional worries concerning potential dificulties of navigating through the restaurant in a wheelchair.
Whether you enjoy watching or playing sports, Windy City has enough wind for your wings (possibly wheels also). Cheer away at Soldier Field, United Center, Wrigley Field or U.S. Cellular Field with comfortable and accessible seating provided. Does it seem like a perfect day for cycling? No problem!

From rock climbing to Dragon boat racing, you will find something in accordance with your own preferences for movement, for sure!
