Journey to the Cincinnati area to immerse yourself in the "Reason for the Season" on this faith-based tour that includes the magnificent Ark Encounter and Creation Museum, both decked out for Christmas. Highlights include stunning light displays, a live nativity, unique Christmas shopping, and so much more! 

Day 1

Enjoy the countryside as we motor through the midwest to our final destination, Florence, KY!

Day 2

KROHN CONSERVATORY HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE: Discover a shimmering landscape of holiday greenery, florals, and model trains winding through a miniature version of Cincinnati, made out of natural materials by the legendary creative and engineering team of Applied Imagination.

MAKE A GLASS ORNAMENT: At Brazee Street Studios, you'll use a glass fusing technique to create a keepsake that you can pass down to the next generation!

CHRISTMASTOWN AT THE CREATION MUSEUM: Yes, you'll have full access to the Creation Museum, where the stories of the Bible come to life. But just wait until the sun sets and you walk through the sparkling Garden of Lights. You just might meet a Magi, shepherds, or other Bible characters telling about their connection with the birth of Christ.

Day 3

FINDLAY MARKET: This Cincinnati market is all decked out for the holidays. You'll tour (and get a taste) with some yuletide spirit to spare.

HOLIDAY JUNCTION AT UNION TERMINAL: This stop is for the kid in all of us. Not only is it a display of hundreds of model trains zipping around a winter wonderland, but here you can also step inside a children's storybook, take a "snowy" walk, and build a snowman under the lights.

CHRISTMASTIME AT ARK ENCOUNTER: Not only will you have full access to all of the permanent exhibits at the Ark and be mesmerized by this architectural triumph, but you'll also get to see one of the most amazing light shows you've ever seen. Holiday highlights include an ice skating rink, unique shopping at the fair trade market, and more.
