Faith-based travel is turning into a booming business. A rafting trip on the Colorado River describes the Grand Canyon from a creationist perspective, for instance. A tour of Central American can turn into a volunteer mission. And a vacation in Israel can be a study tour instead.
The Early Show correspondent Debbye Turner checked out some of these faith-based vacation sites around the world, starting with a visit to the Holy Land Experience, a biblically-themed park in Orlando, Fla.
"What most people are, especially now, experiencing and wanting is a balance between traditional sightseeing and faith based travel," Kevin Wright, religious tour director of Globus Tours told Turner. "So when they go to Italy, although they want to see the Vatican, they want to experience some nice Italian meals."
