Known as a UNESCO Creative City, Paducah, Kentucky brings together lovers of the fiber arts, history buffs, and those hoping for a relaxing vacation. Whether you are coming into town for one of their famous festivals or just visiting this Southern charmer, you are in for a treat. Reserve a room in one of the fine Paducah hotels, and you're ready to explore the 19th century architecture of the downtown area while also enjoying the tastes of the city.
The Whitehaven Welcome Center is a beautiful first stop to kick off Paducah Kentucky vacations. Housed in a restored 1860s mansion, it provides ample information to visitors, as well as a community spot for events throughout the year. From there, visit The National Quilt Museum. Their rotating exhibits showcase incredible fiber art pieces that draw quilters in from around the globe. Take a stroll along the Paducah Riverwalk, which is just beyond the floodwalls, themselves works of art thanks to the murals on them depicting the history of the city. After saving on one of the comprehensive Paducah vacation packages, you can afford to indulge yourself in the Lower Town Arts District before exploring the William Clark Market House Museum. From the Civil War trappings to memorabilia from famous local residents, this general history museum is a treasure.

In May, the Lower Town Art & Music Festival celebrates the talent of Western Kentucky. It's a lively affair set near the historic district.
