Spotlight: Los Angeles
Special Needs Group is pleased to once again be providing service to all cruise lines sailing out of Los Angeles.
Los Angeles is a world center of entertainment, culture, fashion, technology, business and education. Often referred to as the “Entertainment Capital of the World,” Los Angeles provides wheelchair accessible vacations, fun and entertainment to both residents and visitors. Rent your scooter, wheelchair, or power wheelchair rental in Los Angeles through Special Needs Group and experience it all for yourself. From shopping, beaches, amusement parks, museums, galleries, live music, fantastic culinary experiences and more – the question isn’t, ‘What should we do?’ But rather, ‘Where shall we begin?
If you’re looking for a place to see stars – the celestial type, that is – during your vacation, take your Los Angeles mobility scooter or wheelchair rental to the Griffith Park Observatory. The popular tourist attraction has an extensive array of space and science related displays. The Griffith Observatory includes the Samuel Oschin Planetarium, which has a show that takes visitors on a cosmic journey of exploration and discovery; the Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon, a 200-seat theater; Public Telescopes; Exhibit Halls inside and outside the building; Gottlieb Transit Corridor, a 150-foot long passageway that immerses visitors in the motions of the Sun, Moon and stars. During the day, the views are phenomenal, both of the city and the Hollywood Sign; going at sunset, it is a sight to behold. Griffith Observatory provides excellent wheelchair accessible vacations for persons with disabilities. All levels of the building and grounds are accessible to all visitors including those with a scooter rental in Los Angeles. Each level has elevator access, and some are also accessible by ramp. The two theaters – Samuel Oschin Planetarium and Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon – offer assistive listening devices upon request. And the regularly scheduled film (“The Once and Future Griffith Observatory”) in the Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon also has open captioning upon request. For additional accommodations for visitors with special needs, please call (213) 473-0800.
Los Angeles has a couple of renowned streets for shopping and attractions. The most famous street for high end shopping is Rodeo Drive. Spanning across three city blocks, Rodeo Drive includes more than 100 world-renowned boutiques and hotels including: Versace, Tiffany & Co., Prada, Cartier, Fendi and Chanel. Most, if not all, of the shops are accessible for those with a Los Angeles mobility scooter or power wheelchair rental. Another famous street is Sunset Strip, the mile and a half stretch of Sunset Boulevard. The Strip has a variety of famous restaurants, boutiques, hotels and night clubs. The area is great for people-watching and is also wheelchair accessible.
For fans of American sports history, the Championship Tour at Dodger Stadium is a must-see with a wheelchair or mobility scooter rental in Los Angeles.

The Championship Tour gives visitors exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Stadium, including the field, Dodger dugout, the Vin Scully Press Box and the Dugout Club, home of the Dodger’s two World Series trophies. The tour is approximately 80-90 minutes long and is accommodating to those visiting on wheelchair accessible vacations.
