Wheelchair accessible details on rooms at the Sandpeddler Inn and Suites in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Laura’s love for traveling started with a trip to Jamaica. Since then, she’s spent over five years living in Latin America and four years wandering the globe. She’s an early bird and backpacker at heart and can often be spotted with a dog or ten that she’s befriended along the way. Much of the content Laura writes on A Piece of Travel includes details on wheelchair accessibility, with the support of her brother-in-law and sister. You can learn about their accessibility endeavors here.

The southern end of Wrightsville Beach, across from the water. All public areas outside of the hotel (and on the island in general) are relatively level with the major grade change being to access the beach. Directly across from the Sandpeddler is beach access that is concrete and fairly smooth with a gradual incline to the top of the dunes. Beach wheelchairs are available in the town office for free. From what we saw, all crosswalks on the island have the drop curbs at the crosswalks, as they do around the area of the Sandpeddler.
