Paducah -

Get in

By Car
Most visitors will arrive by car: Interstate Highway 24 describes a semi-circle Paducah from the northwest where it crosses the Ohio River into Southern Illinois to the southeast where it meets the Kentucky Turnpike near Lake Barkley. You could also reach Paducah from the east or the west using U.S. Highway 60.

By Plane
There are several commercial flights per day from the Barkley regional airport 4 miles west of town to and from St. Louis, Missouri and Nashville, Tennessee.


  Land Between the Lakes. Outdoor recreation area.


  Market District. Revitalized starting in the early 1990s, Paducah's riverfront downtown boasts a charming restaurants, shops, museums and an active farmer's market. A particularly unique offering is that of the mural-covered Ohio River flood walls, which are well worth an afternoon of your time.
  Lowertown Arts District. The centerpiece of Paducah's Artist Relocation Program, Lowertown plays host to a dozen or so art galleries of varying reputation, one of the friendly coffee houses ever and a fine-dining fusion style restaurant. How could you go wrong? In general the feel of the neighborhood is reminiscent of New Orleans' Garden District, at least before the storm and floods of 2005. If you make art yourself the city might even be willing to buy you a house here.

Paducah is a small city on the Ohio River in Western Kentucky with a booming riverfront restaurant trade and arts scene in part driven by the city's Artist relocation program which offers interest free housing loans, and other subsidies for established artists willing to relocate from New York, San Francisco, or elsewhere.
