Meet Me in Florence

Family Fun in Northern Kentucky

As you drive north through the rolling hills and over the limestone caves of Kentucky, you know you’ve arrived when the iconic “Florence Y’all” water tower beckons you to hop off I-75. Florence is a popular destination for families thanks to its proximity to the Ark Encounter, a 510-foot replica from the Biblical story. The family fun is just getting started with a visit to DEFY trampoline park, a Florence Y’alls baseball game or a go-kart race at Full Throttle Adrenaline Park. Don't forget to include the Creation Museum in your itinerary as well!
