"Located in Kentucky on the Ohio River, Paducah lies about halfway between St. Louis, Missouri and Nashville, Tennessee. The ultimate small town hamlet, Paducah is best known for antiquing and crafts. The former is represented in multitudes of antique and collectible shops and the latter can be seen in the popular National Quilt Museum, the town's largest tourist attraction. Paducah is a stop on many Ohio River cruises. Look for it on American Queen Steamboat Company and American Cruise Lines."
