Seattle is an exciting coastal city surrounded by beautiful parklands and mountains. There’s so much to do here that it doesn’t matter what you’re into – culture, nature, food, sports – you’ll be able to have an absolutely perfect vacation here that matches your interests. Laid back and friendly, Seattle is all about authentic local experiences, and is the home of the grunge movement that birthed Nirvana and Pearl Jam, but is also the cosmopolitan home of tech giant Microsoft. Seattle blends its urban and bohemian souls perfectly, and is lots of fun to visit.
There’s a fantastic local food scene to explore, and visiting Pike Place Market is an essential stop if you love to eat, and more than 200 breweries in Washington State so there is plenty of local beer (and wine too actually) to sample when you’re visiting Seattle. There are art museums, and an incredible museum dedicated to rock ’n’ roll, iconic attractions such as the Space Needle, sports stadiums, a world class aquarium, and much more to explore in this dynamic city. Seattle pides itself on its accessibility, and with a mobility scooter or wheelchair rental from Scootaround you’ll be able to navigate the city with ease.

If you already hold disabled permits from any other state or from Canada, then Seattle allows you free street parking in any allowed parking zones, and you can park there for longer than the posted allowed times. Seattle does not issue disabled parking permits so you will need to take your existing permit with you. Seattle building code dictates that businesses must have a certain number of allocated parking spaces for disabled drivers, so you should have no trouble finding places to park.
I have used Scootaround 3 or 4 times and really enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone.
My Sister and I are thinking of going back to Disneyland in December and back East for the Fall Colors in 2015.M. Thomas
The rental was the best. I made my arrangements by phone. When I arrived at the Disney Hotel, I stopped at the Bell desk and picked up my scooter. When we were finished with our stay just parked it at the Bell desk.
It made my trip so effortless. I will do this again.D. Brown
You have great equipment!! It works well and everything one needs is included. Delivery and pick-up have been very smooth.J. Florito
I have always been pleased with your service and have used Scootaround several times.
It's so convenient and the scooters are in wonderful working condition.V. Rogers
It was wonderful to be able to get around so easily.
Sometimes when it is really crowded people get inpatient with us. But the majority of people are kind. Having the use of a scooter makes it a lot of fun and easier to keep up with the grankids.P. Lockwood
Excellent assistance when making the reservation. It was delivered as promised and fully charged.
Very happy with the service!!V. Thomas
The rental was awesome. By the time I got to hotel it was there. When I left I just left it in the front office. No problem whatsoever !!O. Baldazo
The glass sculptures exhibited in these beautiful gardens are not to be missed when you’re visiting Seattle. Not familiar with Dale Chihuly’s stunning artistry with glass? Prepare to be amazed at the complexity of his work and wowed at how beautifully it sits amongst the thoughtful landscaping. There’s a movie detailing how Chihuly creates his masterpieces that is well worth watching, and gallery tours and talks that you can join while there should you want to go a bit deeper.
You can buy a combo ticket that gives access to both this attraction and the Space Needle, should you want a perfect view of Seattle from above. (These popular attractions are located right next to each other.) Seeing the collection at night is quite lovely, and there’s live music in the gardens on some evenings too. The garden is fully wheelchair accessible, and laid out in such a way that there are plenty of places to stop and sit for a while if you need to.
Since it started in 1907, Pike Place Market has been the go-to place to buy local produce, fresh fish, meat, and just about everything else produced in and around Seattle. These days it is also a great place to search out artisan and specialty foods, grab lunch, or check out the craftspeople that sell there too. The market covers nine acres with more than 200 stores, and 80 restaurants (serving up everything from fine dining to simpler fare). There’s a lot to see, and Pike Place Market is much loved by visitors and locals alike.
Most parts of the market (and the stores that are a part of it) are wheelchair accessible, but there are no rentals available on site. Because the market is huge, it’s a good idea to arrange to have wheelchair or electric scooter on hand before you go, which of course Scootaround can help you with.
This super cool museum is one of the biggest collections of air and space vehicles in the world, and offers plenty for visitors to explore. There are fighter planes from the two World Wars, a Concorde, Air Force One jet, flight simulators, exhibits demonstrating the science of flight, and plenty of neat stuff from NASA explaining the mechanics of space travel.
All galleries in the Museum of Flight are wheelchair accessible, and there are courtesy wheelchairs available for guest use. This is a big museum, so come prepared to be covering a lot of ground. Don’t worry about leaving to eat as there’s a decent café there too, which is useful considering you’ll need a full day to properly explore the place.
Just visiting the building that houses this fantastic museum is worth the ticket price, being that it was designed by Frank Gehry and is an architectural work of art. Inside The Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame you’ll find exhibits highlighting the most exciting people and ideas in popular culture, from exhibits on Star Trek to Hendrix to wearable art through the ages. Fittingly, considering that Seattle is the birthplace of grunge music, the EMP Museum has the world’s largest collection of Nirvana memorabilia. There are also 236 epic guitars in their permanent collection, each having belonged to one music legend or another. If you like music, this is an essential addition to your Seattle itinerary.
One extra cool fact about the EMP Museum: It was designed in collaboration with members of Seattle’s disabled community to be fully inclusive to everyone. The building is fully accessible and wheelchair users are able to fully partake in every experience offered there.
