When you think top tourist destinations in the United States, what comes to mind? Well, according to a new study, Cincinnati (and the greater Northern Kentucky area), should immediately come to mind because we ranked number seven in the entire US for summer vacation destinations!

This study proved what we could already have told you—this area is a wonderful place to bring your family for summer vacation!

Cities were ranked based on forty criteria, such as budget and family-friendliness. On the scale, one was best and fifty was average—and we ranked one for cost of flight and three for travel costs and hassles! Our area is also far above average in number and diversity of attractions, as well as activities. This study proved what we could already have told you—this area is a wonderful place to bring your family for summer vacation

The NKY area (which includes Cincinnati) is a one-day drive for two-thirds of the American population. And, considering we ranked extremely well for cost of flight, it’s affordable to come and visit this area, even if you can’t drive here. And our two world-class, biblical-themed attractions, the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum, are conveniently located near the Cincinnati (CVG) airport.

Our area might be number seven in the US for summer vacation destinations, which is already impressive, but we’ve quickly become number one in faith-based tourism. People come from across the US and all over the world to experience the world’s leading Christian themed attractions. And it’s not just a vacation, you’re equipping your family to think biblically, defend the Christian faith, know why they believe what they believe, and stand boldly on God’s Word and the gospel.

I encourage you to plan your summer trip to see the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum and experience everything else NKY and Cincinnati have to offer.
