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

The riverwalk is a relaxing venue with places to stop, sit and enjoy the view of the river. As a people watcher, this is a great place to come and watch a diverse public. We enjoyed it.

My parents and my husband enjoyed an overnight in Paducah and really enjoyed sitting on the benches under shade trees watching the river and boats and barges go by. Then we topped it off with ice cream on a hot summer day! Delightful!

Beautiful scenery and popular spot for an evening out. Lots of people fishing, riding bikes, and visiting. Had fun watching the barges down the river.

This short walk along the river in Paducah features great river views, historical markers, and the chance to watch life on the river as it is carried out every day. We will visit again.

Paducah sits at the confluence of the Tennessee and Ohio rivers. You can drive down to the river and look back up to the flood walls protecting downtown from a sometimes raging river. The old downtown is now a center for the arts, good food and antiques. Do yourself a favor. Get off of I24 and experience Paducah, Kentucky.

Nice stroll along the river. Best to go early morning or evening in the summertime. There is some shade available but it still gets HOT during the day.

I have visited river walks in many places and this is by far the smallest I have encountered. I suppose I'm used to pedestrian bridges, bike rentals, and riding trails. I saw the river and about 10 people which took all of 10 minutes. They have tried to make this small place welcoming but it is a quick trip if... More
