Designated a UNESCO Creative City, Paducah is one of those quintessentially artsy towns you happen across unexpectedly. The National Quilt Museum brings folk into the fine art realm. Lower Town Arts District was revived and restored by an artist relocation program that created a thriving community in a neighborhood that was previously in decline. Experience it for yourself during Second Saturdays and the arts and music festival in May, or visit the dozens of galleries any time. The Yeiser Art Center provides education and activities to bring art into the lives of locals and visitors alike. The creatively minded will find much to cherish here.

"Couple Peter and Amber Barnett are quite the team. They draw from their European upbringing and experience working at international coffee shops to purvey the finest tea leafs and coffee beans you can get your hands on. Beyond Peter’s top flight coffee and tea offerings, he and his wife are some of the most hospitable and generous folks you’ll ever meet. Tip: Order the gold, frankincense, myrrh latte, which contains a proper of dose of turmeric and cardamom to keep your body healthy and functioning."

"A designated UNESCO Creative City of Crafts & Folk Art since 2013, and home of the awe-inspiring National Quilt Museum, this riverfront town is about two hours from Nashville.

Artist studios and restaurants abound amid the 20-block, beautifully maintained historic downtown, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, an expansive historical mural flanks the Ohio River bank."
