TUESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2017: Our motorcoach arrives at 6:45 AM to the pick-up point and loads passengers and luggage. We depart the pick-up point at 7:00 AM. An early morning breakfast stop at a fast food restaurant will hold us over until we arrive at the CREATION MUSEUM at noontime. Our group will venture through biblical history as we tour the state-of-the-art Creation Museum. We will view stunning exhibits, botanical gardens, a planetarium, petting zoo and more. Lunch will be on your own at NOAH'S CAFÉ. Late in the afternoon we will check into our hotel, the COMFORT SUITES RIVERFRONT in Newport, Kentucky. Our evening will spent aboard the popular BB RIVERBOATS. The CAPTAIN'S DINNER CRUISE offers a magnificent meal, narration on the history of the river and dancing under the stars.
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2017: After breakfast, we will depart our hotel for a tour of the beautiful ST. MARY'S CATHEDRAL BASILICA OF THE ASSUMPTION. The basilica is known for its beauty and architecture. It was built at the turn of the 19th century and its most striking feature is all the stained glass inside. Roughly one whole side of the basilica is covered with stained glass. In total, there are 82 stained glass windows. The Stations of the Cross are made of tiny mosaic tiles by artisans from the old country and the Gothic design offers gargoyles and arches. There are three pipe organs and often concerts are held for the community. We will then spend some time exploring MAIN-STREET STRASSE VILLAGE in Covington, Kentucky. The area offers many unique and eclectic shopping venues. Of course, the highlight of our trip is our visit to THE ARK ENCOUNTER. The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind, historically themed attraction presenting a number of historical events centered on Noah's Ark as recorded in the Bible. This is an experience like no other. From the moment the Ark comes into view, you will marvel at its massive size. The ark is seven stories tall and a football field and a half long. It is the largest timber frame structure in the world. You'll experience close encounters with stunning animals, some real and some recreations and view fascinating exhibits. Enjoy lunch on your own in EMZARA'S KITCHEN. On our way home, there will be a stop at a family-style restaurant for dinner, which is on your own. We will arrive back to the original pick-up point at approximately 10:00 PM.
