Sightseeing
There are many businesses and shops to visit that are in beautiful historic buildings in the immediate area, bakeries, restaurants, antiques, and even bars.

Outdoor Recreational
Want to get active outdoors? Paducah has 4.6 miles of Greenway Trail linking downtown to County Park Road running through Bob Noble Park and Stuart Nelson Park and adjacent to the Ohio River Boat Launch. Much of the trail is concrete and follows the top of the floodwall levee. The 1.75 mile stretch between County Park Road and Bob Noble Park is gravel and surrounded by woods. The best places to park and access the trail are at Stuart Nelson Park, Bob Noble Park, or the Convention Center parking lot (trail is just north of the Paducah Expo Center). This trail is great if you enjoy jogging, biking, or walking.
