Raleigh, N.C. -The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services will be hosting a roll out event for the Spanish version of ACCESS North Carolina on Friday, December 6 from 2 to 4 p.m. The publication, which was originally printed in English, provides details on the accessibility of nearly 400 tourist sites across North Carolina, including specific information about parking, types of paths, entrances, restrooms, water fountains and elevators.

The guide was assembled from information gathered from visits to sites with a tape measure, and from phone calls and questionnaires returned that were sent to hundreds of sites across the state. The guides are funded through fees for special license plates, which also help to pay for improving accessibility at sites, such as adding captioning to visitor center videos or improving physical access at campgrounds and bathhouses.
