Natural beauty, history and a love of art blend to make Paducah a hidden gem of Kentucky. Located in the Four Rivers Area in western Kentucky, the historic downtown abuts the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee rivers. The warm, humid summers allow residents and visitors alike to enjoy a myriad of outdoor activities, including boating, swimming, hiking, biking, camping and rollerblading in one of the many parks, including Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. Top attractions include the historic downtown area, which is separated from the river by the Floodwall Murals, an artistic look at the town’s history. After visiting museums and shopping in the historic district, you can catch a live show at the Market House Theatre and eat at one of the many restaurants.
