The riverwalk has awesome historical murals painted on walls that shield the entrance,. The view of 2 rivers is beautiful. Along the walk historical plaques explain the history of the river's junction. The area is surrounded by a plaza and quaint shops with easy parking.. Carriage rides are an added bonus.

Locals of all ages drive there cars, motorcycles etc down to the river to watch the sunset. Others just walk down. It's not your Key West crowd, just everyday folks enjoying getting down to enjoy the evening. Loved it.

If, during your mid-West travels, you're fortunate enough to visit the quaint Lowertown/downtown region of Paducah, KY to perhaps visit the American Quilting Museum; be sure to include a visit to PAPA (Paducah Area Painters Alliance), 124 Broadway, to enjoy the works of approximately 100 local artisans. My personal favorite, Rudy Holmes' talent, will be sure to catch your eye... More

It was neat to visit the river walk. We found out that down near the riverwalk, local artists sell their goods in a cart they can sign out to use. My husband bought a really neat ring made out of a half dollar and I bought some neat glass earrings. Very nice. The mural on the riverwalk is something to... More

Beautiful and many locally owned businesses. Definitely worth visiting when in Paducah. Every city should revitalize their downtown with urban renewal; it is an excellent way for small business to survive.

Great; about 300m from museum and old town shops and 5 or 6 cafes open for simple snacks or full meal low prices. Large carparks at riverfront and at Quilt museum free.

We visited the river walk on Saturday afternoon. The murals on the flood wall are beautiful. There were lots of folks walking the wall both on the town and river sides. There are lots of benches where you can rest, some in the shade if it is warm. Great place to read a but and see the history of Paducah.

Good: The murals are absolutely beautiful; great depiction of the town's history Bad: I worry that there isn't better signage between the walkways and it's dangerous for pedestrians and cars traveling the same areas. Ugly: Nothing

We happened upon this Riverwalk by accident. We were looking for the National Quilt Museum which is nearby and found this magnicifient place. We watched two bald eagles as they were catching fish in the river. This place has some history behind it.
