Go ~ See ~ Do
The incredibleACCESSIBLE.com (iA) mission is to provide knowledge, confidence, and inspiration to people with disabilities, and seniors with mobility challenges – to go, see, and do, in their own community or around the world. We visit destinations across the globe to capture the essence of a place. We accomplish this by sharing web-based Spotlights on Accessibility of real-life incredible, accessible experiences and itineraries.
Our Spotlights feature:
- Descriptive photos
- Personal commentary
- Details including transportation, parking, entrances, seating, accommodations, and restrooms.
iA empowers people with disabilities and seniors with mobility challenges…and their travel companions – to go places they weren’t sure they could go, and do things they weren’t sure they could do.
To facilitate easier travel for people needing accessibility, iA works with the tourism industry. We suggest improvements and increase awareness of accessibility issues, stressing that it’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the economically beneficial thing to do.
incredibleACCESSIBLE.com was founded in 2014 by Jeanne Allen, a Baby Boomer disabled by Multiple Sclerosis and dependent on a mobility scooter, and her pre-Baby Boomer husband and co-traveler, Chip Allen.
Over the next several years Jeanne and Chip will do Spotlights on Accessibility throughout the great cities of the world. Jeanne and Chip call Sonoma, CA home, so the first major iA project will encompass their own back yard of Sonoma, Napa, and Marin Counties in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Summer 2015 project: incredibleACCESSIBLE North Bay of Sonoma, Napa, and Marin
Fall 2015-2016 project: incredibleACCESSIBLE USA and Canada

As iA services are without charge, donations will assist in defraying the cost of transportation, lodging, meals, experiences, and operational support.
