accessible* Homer, Alaska

* accessible means different things in different contexts. If a place meets standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we make that clear. If it's working in that direction but not yet there, we describe (or show) the conditions you'll find so YOU can decide if it's accessible to you.

We're just working on these tables, but we want you to see where we're heading with this website--and we hope you'll send us information about the accessibility of YOUR business, place, or activity.
