"Explore the hidden gems of each state: towns with quaint shops and restaurants, fascinating histories, fun experiences and natural beauty.

In 2019, Paducah, Kentucky celebrates its fifth anniversary as a UNESCO Creative City; it's one of only nine in the U.S. This riverside town has a blossoming culinary scene (five new eateries in repurposed historic buildings have opened), and its many studios, workshops, galleries and cultural events attract quilters, fiber artists and other creatives."
