I just saw a photo of a (looks like) rubber sidewalk for disabled, mostly wheelchair, for the beach. It stretched from the parking lot to close to the water. This would be an awesome addition to our beaches. We brag about Siesta Key being a No. 1 beach, let's make it so.
After I saw it, I posted it to a friend's timeline who has a sister-in-law with disabilities. They take her to the beach and it is not easy.
This would help so many people and, if advertised, would be yet another reason for tourists to choose us as a destination above other choices. I have had both my knees replaced and I would definitely benefit from not having to fight the sand to get to the water.
Never miss a local story.
