Wheel the World is revolutionizing the user experience for visitors with disabilities. Tampa Bay has made a significant impact in the travel and tourism industry, inspiring others to follow in its footsteps.

Visit Tampa Bay has had a wonderful experience collaborating with Wheel the World. As a testament to this collaboration, we have decided to add more listings on their platform.. This decision is motivated by the exceptional results we’ve seen, and we are eager to see what the future holds!

My experience with Wheel the World has been overwhelmingly positive. The company excels at collaboration, always open to feedback and dedicated to enhancing their platform to better serve our visitors. I particularly appreciate their commitment to education, offering valuable resources that enable our partners to understand and improve accessibility.

I’m a firm believer in the benefits of "knowing before you go," and our collaboration with Wheel the World has truly elevated the visitor experience in Mesa.

The Destination Verified program through Wheel the World has been an incredible experience for the Visit Lauderdale team and the millions of people who travel here each year.

Working together has been phenomenal! They have helped us map Greater Fort Lauderdale and highlight our existing accessible experiences. Also, tapping into Wheel the World's vast network and being listed on their website has certainly helped to spread the word that Greater Fort Lauderdale is an accessible destination. The team is a pleasure to work with.
