There are murals in many towns, but Paducah’s are truly beautiful reflections of the history of the city. They are distinct, high quality works of art with accompanying explanations. It’s well worth taking the time to visit the River Walk.

We walked down the river walk in conjunction with the floodwall murals. Free parking down by the river walk. It was a very pretty view and the downtown area was neat to see. Lots of people out and about eating alfresco downtown but not crowded....More

After walking and seeing all of the murals, circle back along the riverfront and read the historical signs along the way.

What a wonderful to take a walk. The day was beautiful. Even our dog loved it too. We were there on a Saturday and they had a farmers market which was fun. We got a lot of local veggies.

A nice place to walk or sit and talk. You get a sense of history & current history. Great place to sit & reflect.

Not much there and it is very industrial. I was there when it was raining and there was a threat of flooding.

Beautiful any time of the day, but try to come at sunset if you are able. This is a Paducah "must see".

Across the street is a good sized parking lot that you could park to look around in the area, but not to do overnight parking.
