10 Aug Looking For PWD-Friendly Restaurants In Downtown Lakeland
PWD stands for persons with disabilities. There are many establishments right now that are friendly and actually hospitable to people who are suffering from any form of disability, be it a minor or major disability. There was a time in this cold and unforgiving world when PWDs where often laughed at and shunned in places that should welcome them. Fortunately, the human race has changed for the better (hopefully) and everywhere, including Downtown Lakeland, people with disabilities are being welcomed with open arms.
Downtown Lakeland is such a picturesque little town in the heart of Florida, so people get charmed by it all the time. It’s easy enough to miss Lakeland on its own. It isn’t as big a city as Orlando, Tampa, or Miami. Thanks to social media, however, it has come to life and tourists are now flocking to it.
There are some who had to travel to and visit Downtown Lakeland even with their disabilities. And to this, Downtown Lakeland presents an open arm. The whole town is friendly to people who are suffering from disabilities, and this special group of people won’t be left wanting for places that will be hospitable to them.
Here are some pointers that can help you:
While all restaurants will have facilities for PWDs, some others (those with really old features) may not. It’s always better to make sure what to expect from these establishments, so you need to call ahead and ask if they have facilities for PWDs such as a ramp, an elevator, a more spacious seating area for the wheelchair, for example, etc. This will avoid the hassle of arriving in a place and learning that you have to find another restaurant because it won’t be able to accommodate your needs.
Check the reviews
It’s better to call and get answers straight from the staff of the restaurants, but you can also check out what other customers have to say about your choice of dining place. There are thousands of websites and hundreds of apps that are dedicated to reviewing each and every restaurant in America. Simply browse through one of these sites or download a trusted app and search for the restaurant of your choosing. In Downtown Lakeland alone, there are hundreds you can choose from. Check out what the other customers (especially PWDs) have to say about them—whether they had a good or bad experience.
