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.
