We make our usual pickups here in Florida then head into Georgia as we enjoy getting to know our fellow traveling companions. After a lunch stop we continue motoring northbound to our overnight in Chattanooga, TN and the Fairfield Inn. Dinner will be at a locally famous BBQ joint—Sticky Fingers.
DAY TWO —Tuesday — CB
We’re on the road again passing through the mountains of Southeast Tennessee enroute to the border of Kentucky. In keeping with the tour’s theme we’ll pause at the Cumberland Museum in Williamsburg to view over 7,000 crosses and crucifixes. This collection was started by Robert Williams, a chaplain in the Air Force, when he became aware of the special symbolism the cross had for Christians and the variety of forms that had been used to portray the adorned symbol.
Early afternoon finds us at the amazing Ark Encounter. The large representation of Noah's Ark was based on the Genesis flood narrative contained in the Bible. It is 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high. Walk the many galleries and learn more about the history of this beloved Christian story. Enjoy lunch on your own in the huge, adjacent Emzara’s Kitchen. Our overnight will be in Florence, KY at the Hampton Inn.

Today we travel the short distance to Petersburg, KY and the Creation Museum. Bible history comes to life as this attraction near Cincinnati explores creation science with stunning exhibits, dinosaur bones, fossils, botanical gardens, a planetarium and more. Later this evening finds us in Nashville for our final overnight at the Drury Inn. We can’t miss what Music City is all about. Let’s tap our feet at the always-entertaining Grand Ole Opry Show.
