My family headed down to Cincinnati on the 4th for the Ark Encounter ribbon cutting. We have been waiting and praying for this project for about two years, and it was so neat to be able to see the project open. The Ark Encounter is about 35 min. south of Cincinnati in williamstown, KY. It is a full size model of the Ark that God told Noah to build in Genesis. It is HUGE! They are still working on completing it 100%, but it is already an excellent museum/attraction. Along with the exhibits presenting proof that a world wide flood happened and how we can believe the Bible is true, they also have a petting zoo, restaurant and zip line. The gift shop was really great too! They had a beautiful section of fair trade gifts and accessories. They also have a small exhibit on loan from the National Bible Museum that is opening in DC next year. This is definitely a museum that I am looking forward to seeing!
We didn’t get to check out the food scene in Cincinnati but we did get to eat at a family favorite, Aladdins Eatery. We all were humming our happy tummy songs during this meal! Amazing shwarma! The mint tea is killer and make sure you order the dip sampler if you go!
We headed home early Wednesday morning. We didn’t pass Indianapolis at the right time, but if we had I was fully prepared to beg for a stop at Milktooth.
