Join us and explore the state of Kentucky, known as the “Bluegrass State.” Experience all the attractions you know about and discover all those you don’t. First, we will arrive in Louisville, meet our tour manager, and transfer to our hotel in Louisville for a two-night stay. The next morning, we will enjoy a Louisville city tour and see the Kentucky Derby Museum, enjoy a walking tour of Churchill Downs race track, visit the Mohammad Ali Center, tour the Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat Factory and museum, and then enjoy the evening at the Derby Dinner Playhouse, with a delicious buffet dinner. The next day, we will motor south to Bardstown to the famous “My Old Kentucky Home” state park and see a restored 1795 farm. Our next stop will be in Loretto for a Bourbon Tour and tasting at the Maker’s Mark Distillery. We will also visit Shaker Village, a restored early 1800s Shaker religious community. Next, we will tour the Hall of Champions, the International Museum of the Horse, and see the Parade of Breeds. Later, we will visit Ashland, the plantation home of statesman Henry Clay. The next morning, we’ll drive north to Williamstown to see the life-size replica of Noah’s Ark, the largest timber frame structure in the world, which opened in 2016 and was built to the dimensions given in the Bible. The structure measures 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high and has three decks of exhibits. Later, we will travel to Georgetown to visit the Toyota Auto Plant for an up-close look at what it takes to build a car. The plant is home to the Camry and Avalon. On our final night of the trip, we will enjoy a farewell dinner.
