New Travel Agency Caters To Families With Autistic Children

The nation's most-visited national park is also one of the best for leaf peeping. The fall colors in the Great Smoky Mountains arrive as early as mid-September at higher elevations and work their way down. Take a drive along Clingmans Dome Road or the Blue Ridge Parkway for a good look.
America’s national parks offer visitors inspiring and affordable ways to unplug and reconnect with nature. Although not every state has a national park, the National Park Service also oversees national monuments, national historic sites, and national rivers, among other areas. Some parks are iconic, such as Yellowstone and Yosemite, and others are underrated and lightly visited. This list highlights 50 must-see destinations — the best the country has to offer. National parks often charge an entrance fee that grants seven days of access and costs up to $35 a vehicle. An interagency annual pass provides access to all the national parks and other federal fee areas for $80. Seniors 62 or older can buy a lifetime passes for $80 and annual passes for $20. Members of the military are eligible for free annual passes. Fee-free days also are offered occasionally during the year, including Sept. 22 for National Public Lands Day and Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

MILWAUKEE, WI – Wisconsin’s first travel agency focused on serving families affected by autism is now open in Milwaukee.

Autism Family Vacations is owned and operated by Sara Nowacki, a Certified Autism Travel Professional who has children of her own who possess special abilities. The agency is a part of the Autism Travel Support Network which provides options for travel with a family member on the autism spectrum.

“The vast majority of families affected by autism don’t take vacations to experience the joy and bonding of travel,” said Sara Nowacki, owner of Autism Family Vacations in a statement to Milwaukee Patch. “More and more resorts and destinations are training staff members and providing outstanding opportunities to engage and support family members on the autism spectrum. As a mother with children who have some special abilities, it’s an honor to provide this service to families.”

Autism Friendly Vacations can provide turn-key travel options for families. The list of compatible destinations that offer accommodations increases daily and includes Disney Parks, cruise lines, Caribbean resorts and domestic locations.
