DAY 1

Your journey begins with meal and rest stops at your expense enroute to your host hotel for a three-night stay, the Hampton Inn Cincinnati/Airport South (859-283-1600). Guest rooms feature a mini refrigerator, coffeemaker, hairdryer and iron/ironing board. Hotel Amenities include an outdoor seasonal pool, fitness center and business center with complimentary WiFi. Dinner tonight is on your own with the rest of the night to relax and unwind.

DAY 2

Wake up to breakfast included at the hotel before you board the motorcoach and depart for the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. The Creation Museum brings the pages of the Bible to life featuring 160 inspiring exhibits divided into uniquely configured spaces that allow for personal interactions. Marvel at the waterfall, the towering trees, large aquarium and the live animal exhibits as you pass through the Main Hall. Wander through the Dig Site and see a coal mine, fossil displays and a dinosaur skeleton under excavation. Learn about the 7 C's of history including Creation, Corruption and Catastrophe. That's not all, witness the three magnificent gardens that glorify the landscape and are home to creatures both great and small. See a 12-foot topiary dinosaur strike a fearsome pose in the rainforest amid the logs in the lake that provide a safe haven for the turtles. Visit the bog garden that is home to the amazing Venus flytrap and pitcher plant. Enjoy the tranquility and beauty as you gaze at the rich palate of bright flowers that attract hummingbirds and butterflies to the hillside garden. During your self-guided tour of the museum, you will have time for lunch on your own. Next, you depart for an "illuminating experience" at the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio. To quote a song lyric, "Signs, signs, everywhere are signs…without them how would you get to where you are going or know what to do. The American Sign Museum is dedicated to the art and history of signs and sign making. Covering more than 100 years of American sign history, the museum is a walk through the ages of sign technologies and designs. The storefront Signs on Main Street display welcomes visitors with a creation of typical "Main Street USA" with shop windows full of sign-related objects, curiosities and samples. Look for the full-size, reassembled, Mail Pouch barn sign among others that are interesting to read. After your visit, you depart for a tour of downtown Cincinnati, a bustling city that is known to be fun, vibrant, quirky, sophisticated, entertaining, high-tech, compact, old-world and more. Sit back and enjoy an entertaining and educational look at this beautiful city that rests along the banks of the Ohio River. Dinner is included at a local restaurant before you return to the hotel for the night.

DAY 3

Breakfast is included at the hotel prior to departing for a guided tour of the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. Building the Cathedral was the dream of the Most Reverend Camilius Paul Maes. The project began in 1894 and ended in 1915, incomplete. Traditionally, churches attained the title of basilica because of their antiquity, dignity, historical importance, or significance as centers of worship. Cathedrals were the physical centers of expanding commercial cities. Though largely unfinished even today, the Cathedral is an art and architectural monument that speaks of faith and determination of the Bishop and the community. Next, you are off to Williamstown, Kentucky, for the highly anticipated visit to the Ark Encounter. The largest timber frame structure in the world and an engineering masterpiece, the Ark stands seven stories tall and spans 510 feet long (equivalent to a football field and a half long), 85 feet wide and 51 feet high. Built according to the dimensions given in the Bible, enter Noah's world and tour three decks filled with scores of stunning exhibits that will allow you to experience what his life may have been like while on the Ark. According to the Bible, Noah's Ark was a safe haven for representatives of all kinds of air-breathing land animals and flying creatures. Ark researchers estimate a maximum of around 7,000 animals were on board, and Noah and his family still had sufficient space for food, water and other storage. How did Noah fit all the animals on board? How did Noah care for all the animals? How did Noah build the Ark? These questions and much more about the year-long global Flood are answered in the mind-blowing and thought-provoking exhibits. During your self-guided visit, take time for lunch on your own in Emzara's Kitchen featuring comfort foods and some specialty items. The evening concludes with a delightful and scenic dinner cruise along the Ohio River aboard a riverboat. Upon arrival back at the dock, you return to the hotel for the remainder of the night.
