Ark Encounter

Ark Encounter

May 4-10, 2020

We are headed back to Kentucky this Spring! The Ark Encounter opened on July 7, 2016, a date (7/7) chosen to correspond with Genesis 7:7: "And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood."

The Ark Encounter features a full-size replica of Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel amazes visitors young and old.

Leaving Lubbock, we will overnight in Texarkana and Nashville, TN as we make our way to Lexington, KY, where we will stay two nights. Upon arrival in Lexington, we will enjoy a city tour and the Mary Todd Lincoln home. The next day we will spend the morning and lunch at the Ark Encounter, then drive to Frankfort (KY capitol) for some shopping and see the capitol sites. Heading back to Lubbock the next day, we will overnight in St. Louis, MO and Tulsa, OK.
