We wrote this article about the accessibility of local attractions with the help of Beth Stombaugh, who uses a manual wheelchair. In the spring of 2023, Beth visited a handful of attractions in St. Pete/Clearwater to gather firsthand insights on their accessibility. A resident of Gulfport, Florida, Beth advocates for the rights of people with disabilities, enjoys taking photos of wildlife in local parks and sings in St. Pete's One City Chorus. Before retiring, Beth was a special education teacher in Ohio for 24 years.
