A Walk on the Waterfront

I have always enjoyed strolling along the river front when visiting Paducah. It's a beautiful location and a nice break from the rushed life we all seem to have.

Very scenic and serene. We were ready to have a little relaxing time. The people in the area were always quite friendly and willing to impart their knowledge of Paducah. We did have a chance to observe several barges going down river.

Downtown is very eclectic. There are several good restaurants. The foldaway murals are an absolute must see!

Beautiful park to set and watch the riverboats go past. Long pathway for biking or walking along the river. Great for getting out and stretching your legs. The downtown area looked interesting but we did not check it out.

We walked the Riverwalk and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fascinating to see all the flooding history and also to witness some flooding now!

The Paducah Riverwalk in locate in downtown Paducah near the Floodwall Murals. The Ohio River and Mississippi River meet there. There are a lot of shopping available.

My brother and I walked two miles in the Paducah city park and on the riverwalk. I liked the new concrete walkway on top of the berm that protects the city of Paducah from river flooding. The view is great, the walking fun, and it is a fine way to get some moderate excercise.
