Spotlights on Accessibility in Sonoma/Napa Wine Country.

I’m Jeanne Allen and I use an electric scooter. I love to travel but, like others with limited mobility, I’m often frustrated by how difficult it is to research and plan a trip. While many destinations boast accessibility, it’s often hard or even impossible to find the specific information I need as a traveler. That’s why I created incredibleACCESSIBLE – an at-a-glance, accessible travel guide to give people with limited mobility, and their travel companions, the knowledge, confidence, and inspiration to travel.

My dream is to expand incredibleACCESSIBLE into a global resource. Right now, I’m starting in my backyard of the Sonoma/Napa Wine Country. I’m shining Spotlights on accessible hotels, wineries, restaurants, shops, and points of interest, visiting in person and reporting all the details to the incredibleACCESSIBLE blog – where to find parking, entrances, seating, restrooms, helpful staff, and any other details that ensure an accessible experience.

Come with me on my journey. Be empowered to go places you weren’t sure you could go and to do things you weren’t sure you could do. Together, we can be incredible!

Black Bear Diner Just Off the Sonoma Plaza

Black Bear Diners and small towns of the Western United States seem almost synonymous.  With 42 properties in California, and another 26 scattered in another 7 states these guys have been serving up home-cooked meals for nearly 20 years.  The service is friendly, the food hearty and delicious, and the signature chain-saw bear sculptures adorable.  And it’s wheelchair accessible.
