Welcome to Paducah, KY!

Named in the honor of the Padouca Indians in Kentucky, Paducah enjoys a strategic location at the convergence of the mighty Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. Situated north of Nashville, near the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, Paducah captures the southern charm and boasts the Land Between The Lakes. Every year, over two million visitors flock to this area to enjoy hiking, mountain biking, horseback trails, camping, hunting and fishing. Families also tour the Woodlands Nature Station or discover the Golden Ponds Park and Nature Area and venture along a stretch of scenic coastline for exceptional wildlife scenery. During eleven painting sessions, Paducah's talented artists and muralist Robert Dafford depicted the city's rich history in murals on panels of the town's floodwall, making the murals a must see area. Visitors can discover the rebirth of quilt making since the 1970s in the Museum of the American Quilter's Society galleries or enjoy the original artwork of 110 local artists (varying from oil to acrylic, watercolor, pastel and collage pieces) at the PAPA Gallery.
