There's a great view of the river from this location along with easy access to launch your boat or drive your hotrod around on a sunny day. During the summertime there are concerts held several times a week at the pavilion overlooking the river

There are events held at the Paducah Riverwalk throughout the year, BBQ on the River, July 4th, and throughout the summer downtown have several sidewalk entertainers performing and many unique stores and restaurants are open, I believe they call it the Summerfest. The Quilt museum is within a few blocks walk, and the whole area is nostalgic and relaxing for... More

I had an opportunity to do a quick Riverwalk prior to dinner earlier this evening. Unfortunately, it was very cold and I only had about 15 to 20 minutes to look around. There are a lot of historical markers and plaques explaining the history of the river, and the community. On my next trip, hopefully it will be much warmer... More

The murals along Paducah's Riverwalk are a wonderful display of the history of Paducah! We were watching the cresting of the Ohio River as we visited the historical murals over a couple of days. I was amazed at the number of murals and how many artists participated in this wall.

The downtown area and the Riverwalk are nice places to see. There is a lot of history here. The riverwalk has a lot of different events going on at various times. Bring your picnic basket.

Whether you're a local - or a long drive from home - Paducah is certainly one of the most unique destinations you have planned in your itinerary. Obviously you are interested in coming to our Downtown area. The Paducah Riverwalk is free, clean and romantic. It is handicapped accessible (for the most part). There is also FREE WI-FI! You can...

Behind the flood wall is the river. It is a nice peaceful walk for late November. There was not much to see on this trip but the history boards and one boat. In nicer weather, you can picnic or sit. My child enjoyed looking, running and walking around.
