Take a walk and see the beautiful artwork and locomotive on display. Don't forget a camera and make sure you walk through the Market section of town.

Nice walk not very long. Great way to learn the history of the city and look at great artwork at the same time.

“Free Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Paducah's floodwall has each section painted with a specific historical point in time mural. Each depicts Paducah's history in vivid detal that will make a walk or a drive down this avenue of murals well worth your time. While you are there stroll on over to Raymond Shultz park, for a picnic lunch. Benches and picnic tables are provided. Take in the scenic river view with barges passing and seagulls flying.

If you visit Paducah you have to visit the flood walls. I always stop at the ice cream shop and walk the murals as I enjoy homemade ice cream on a homemade waffle cone. There are plaques to explain every picture.
