"Paducah claims to be a few hours from everywhere, and they’re not wrong: 140 miles from Nashville, 170 from St. Louis, 180 from Memphis, 220 from Louisville. Most easily accessed on I-24, and while you’re there cross the river to Metropolis and check out the home of Superman.

A major shoutout to Paducah for being an exceptional small-town city, and for the artists, city administrators, and other visionaries who planted the seeds for a river town renaissance.

The Arts District has emerged as a model neighborhood, and it’s also the perfect place to start your 24 hours in Paducah."
