My husband and I came to Paducah on a day trip to do some sightseeing. We found many attractions on Trip Advisor and decided to check them out. The Paducah Riverwalk was a very peaceful area. After viewing the Floodwall Murals we walked down to photograph the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers at the riverwalk. This is a wonderful area to... More

We took an afternoon to walk the historic downtown and check out the river walk. The wall with all of the murals on it was really neat, as well as the old train cars and all of the antique shops.

Well maintained and picturesque walk along the Ohio Riverfront with full view of boat launching, river traffic (including barges), and the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. Picnic at one of the tables, relax and linger. This is the setting for summer concerts, fireworks, and festivals. On the other side of the floodwall you'll find the "Wall to Wall"... More

scenic view all rolled into one. See the history of Paducah as portrayed in the murals painted on the flood walls and the importance and dangers of the river while taking a leisurely stroll along the riverfront. There are areas to sit and watch the river flow by or to picnic as the barges work on the water or just... More

It was quite when we visited, but we enjoyed the town and the surroundings. I prefer it to when the river boats arrive with the crowds.

Best music and fun, not to mention melt in your mouth BBQ. Everything from fried twinkles to deep fried chips! You can walk and enjoy the sites or sit and people watch. Something for everyone!

This festival grows and improves every year. This was year 20 and it was perfect. The weather cooperated with warm days and cool nights. It took place Sept. 25-27 along the beautiful river front in Paducah Kentucky. An estimated 40,000 people attended. There were some assorted vendors but most people came to watch the bar-b-que contest and eat the delicious... More
