Itinerary

Today we board our deluxe motorcoach and begin our journey to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter! We will make stops for comfort and lunch on our own before continuing to Danville, IL, where we will overnight and enjoy dinner as a group.

(Dinner included)

Following breakfast at the hotel, we'll depart for Petersburg, KY, to visit the 75,000-square-foot Creation Museum, where the pages of the Bible dramatically come to life. The day is yours to explore the museum and have lunch on your own at Noah's Cafe. Venture through biblical history as you marvel at the Garden of Eden alongside Adam and Eve. Spot the serpent coiled among the tempting fruit, and discover more about Noah's Ark and the Flood. You'll see state-of-the-art exhibits, fossils and even a full-size Allosaurus skeleton. Then tour the beautiful botanical gardens as you make your way to the petting zoo. After a full day at the museum, we will depart for our evening accommodations in Florence, KY. Enjoy dinner on your own at one of the many restaurants within walking distance of our hotel.

(Breakfast included)

We begin our day with breakfast at the hotel before departing for Williamsburg, KY, and the Ark Encounter! The centerpiece of this park is a full-scale representation of Noah's Ark as described in the Genesis flood narrative of the Bible. At 510 feet long, 85 feet wide and 51 feet high, the Ark is massive – make sure you have your camera ready! Numerous teaching exhibits about the Flood, Noah and the animals are designed to answer your questions about the biblical account of Noah's Ark. Travel back in time on a mile-long scenic bus ride and ascend in view of the Ark. Relax and refuel with lunch, then take time to visit the Ararat Ridge Zoo. Spot some exotic animals, like Tibetan yaks, kangaroos and ostriches. After spending the day at the Ark Encounter, we'll make the drive to our hotel in Indianapolis. Take advantage of Drury Inn’s 5:30 Kickback with free drinks and hot food items, or enjoy dinner on your own at a nearby restaurant.

(Breakfast included)

After breakfast at the hotel, we'll begin our morning at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. Established in 1956, the Museum offers 37,500 square feet of exhibit space featuring cars, trophies, photographs, racing records, memorabilia and so much more! Following our time at the museum, we'll continue our journey home with stops for comfort and lunch on our own along the way.
