HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE TravelEZ?
TravelEZ is pronounced like “Travel Easy”. Just remember: “easy peasy TravelEZ!”
WHY DOES TravelEZ.org EXIST?
Because enough is enough! We’re tired of calling ahead and being told a place is accessible, only to show up and see the foot-high barrier at the entry. “And oh, by the way, all of our tables are high tops and our bathroom doesn’t have any grab bars”…
The solution is to make this information available to everyone! TravelEZ.org is the accessibility community’s shared map and shared voice. By snapping a few quick pics and jotting down some notes, we can help make going out easier, less intimidating, less frustrating, and more fun for our entire community!
DOES TravelEZ.org LEAVE FOOD REVIEWS TOO?
NO WE DO NOT! We are experts in accessibility, not food.
That’s why we listen to the authorities like The New York Times, The Infatuation, Eater, and Zagat to discover which restaurants are worth our pretty penny. But TravelEZ.org just focuses on accessibility - no more, no less.
