Society for Accessible Travel and Hospitality
SATH's "mission is to raise awareness of the needs of all travelers with disabilities, remove physical and attitudinal barriers to free access and expand travel opportunities."
Before setting out, a Babe on the go may want to check out their member blogs and destination write-ups from those who have already been there and done that. One handy feature of the SATH site is the page of links to airlines' access information. They also provide a huge list of TSA links so you can go into your security screening armed (okay, not really) with the right info.
Traveling With a Disability or Chronic Illness
Traveling With a Disability or Chronic Illness is a page from about.com's fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue section, offering links to further disease and travel information.
Here traveling Babes with disabilities can learn some of the highlights of things that can make travel easier and more comfortable. And for you fans of theme parks around the US, you'll find a list of the top 10.
