Paducah Riverwalk in historic Paducah Kentucky is peppered with historic plaques and beautiful views of the river. Walk it at your own pace for the scenery, a very nice afternoon stroll.

We spent a very enjoyable couple hours on a Saturday night @paducah river walk/downtown area. Lots to see! Interesting buildings, shops, live entertainment, venders, carriage rides and more. I recommend it if you are visiting Paducah !

Nice walk and great place to visit along the river. Murals are very neat and there are historical markers along the wall that explains the history! Walk right up to river! Safe and fun but on a hot day or is hot!!

Hot, hot day but a beautiful view, regardless. The water is pretty, and you can walk right down to it. My husband and kiddos (ages 6, 10, 13, and 16) enjoyed the paved walkway next to the (sometimes kinda stinky) river.

We arrived to Paducah early, before the National Quilt Museum was open, so we strolled down to the riverwalk & was pleasantly surprised. It really is beautiful. We walked quite a bit taking pictures of the scenery.

We arrived there around 5. Everything was closed. We enjoyed walking by the river and seeing the paintings on the flood wall.
