Today is National Tourism Day here in the United States of America. It’s part of National Travel and Tourism Week, first celebrated in 1983 when President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation encouraging everyone to celebrate this week of experiencing what our nation, and other nations, have to offer. And we want you to take advantage of this reminder to travel by planning your visit to the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum!

And keep in mind, Northern Kentucky is now considered the leading faith-based tourist destination in the USA, because of the Ark and the Creation Museum. We’re conveniently located: almost 2/3 of the US population can drive here in one day!

According to NationalToday.com, there are three ways to celebrate National Tourism Day:

  1. Give someone a souvenir from your city or state. So, send someone a souvenir from your trip to the Ark Encounter or the Creation Museum! We have a plethora of options, including t-shirts, mugs, hats, stuffed animals, and much more. Encourage them also to plan their own trip to these Christian themed attractions.
  2. Plan a trip to another country. If you live outside the United States, plan a visit to see the the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum. We’re conveniently located near an international airport (CVG), making travel here a breeze. We welcome people from all over and love having guests from all backgrounds visit and be encouraged and equipped.

    And if you live here in the United States and haven’t been to see these attractions, we encourage you to come! Northern Kentucky is a beautiful area, and there’s so much to see and do after you visit the Ark and the museum (get some ideas in my blog from last year). Again, our attractions are within a one-day drive of almost two-thirds of the United States’ population.

  3. Give the gift of travel. Did you know we offer gift cards? These attractions gift cards are good towards the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum admission, great food from our wide range of options, and souvenirs or teaching resources from the huge Ark Encounter gift shop and the Creation Museum bookstore. Encourage someone else to come and hear the life-changing message of the gospel as you give them a gift of a gift card.

So, as Northern Kentucky has quickly become the leading area for faith-based tourism in the United States, plan to visit us soon. These two Christian themed attractions are recognized around the world and visited by people from all over. You’ll be delighted by your visit and eager to come back.

Plan your visit today at ArkEncounter.com or CreationMuseum.org.
