You can go and there is tables to eat at while watching the water on the riverfront. Good for those who like historic attractions which the flood wall has good paintings on it to look at the history of Paducah.

I love everything about Paducah's Riverwalk & all of the sights of Paducah's old downtown area. It's a beautiful stroll along the Riverwalk & there are plaques to tell of it's history. You will see Riverboats passing, recreational activities & music being played by locals. The entire downtown area has had a major renovation and is a great place to... More

The river is an amazing place. The space along it is bright and festive. This is an upbeat area that the citizens clearly try to make central to the artsiness the town is known for. The river itself is a place of commerce. Barges streaming past and large ships going places to stir imaginations in those who sit and watch.

The historical murals were so amazing for my husband and I to read. We stretched our legs around the river walk and got to experience a cute town we didn't know existed before last week! Great free activity!

Great way to pretty up something that wasn't pretty and to tell the rich history of this wonderful community. I wish they had done a better job with the grass upkeep around the markers on the ground in front of murals

Walk along the river wall, read the plaques describing the murals. The murals are professionally painted and describe the history of Paducah. While there look to see if there is any river activity. . . barges, paddlewheel boat, etc. FREE.

This is a great place to go and watch the river activities and enjoy the day. There are lots of shops close by and plenty of places to sit in the shade and enjoy the day and the scenery.

If you have any interest in the river, you need to drive through the floodwall when visiting Paducah. There is always a towboat or many towboats in view, either shifting barges around the busy harbor or passing by with fifteen or more barges at the confluence of the Tennessee and Ohio Rivers. Some people drive by every day while others... More
