Paducah, Kentucky…Art, Rhythm & Rivers
Located in the heart of America, Paducah's art, rivers, & rhythm flow as freely as the hospitality of this friendly historic hamlet. Founded in 1827 by William Clark of Lewis & Clark fame, Paducah's origins and prosperity can be attributed to its strategic location at the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. Today, this same riverfront is the site of steamboat dockings, fireworks, concerts and festivals throughout the year. The downtown boasts quality museums, interesting shops, and regional dining specialties housed within restored 19th century architecture.
