Fairfield Inn and Suites, 200 TigerWay, Georgetown KY


Other Info:

We will not be going to the Creation Museum on this trip. It is 45 minutes further away from the Ark and it is very difficult to do both attractions in a single day. We'll talk about restaurants and food options, etc at the meeting.
