The riverwalk was ok. Not a long walk but was peaceful and quiet along the river when we went. There is a lot to do around the area so worth the stop.

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!!

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.

Our kids like coming down to the riverfront to play around at the edge of the water, look at the train, run past the murals, and finish everything off with some ice cream. We typically like to visit in the late afternoon to avoid the...More
