"State’s far western hub is intentional spot for food, art and fun

Visitors come to Paducah with a purpose. Unlike crossroads cities where travelers wander and linger, Paducah’s location in far western Kentucky ensures they have a reason for stopping by. Whether for the renowned arts scene, restaurants or shopping in its historic downtown, this charming city of 30,000 provides all the motivation visitors need to venture to its corner of the state."
