The article presents information on suitable destinations for disabled travelers. Athens, Greece, for the 2004 Paralympic Games has invested more than 24 million dollar in projects designed to make Athens a friendlier, more functional city for people with disabilities. Many visitors choose to stay near the city center, where most of the major sites are located and transportation is easily accessible. Taos, New Mexico, is one of them. The Taos community is one of diversity, yet in all arenas one will find the same sense of respect, admiration, and appreciation for the land. Travelers with disabilities will find plenty of opportunities to play and stay at the base of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountain range.
