Our family is thinking about the Paducah area for a family reunion this May or June, 2008. What would be the recommedations from people who live in the area? I contacted Green Turtle Bay yesterday to ask how far they are from Paducah and they told me 30 minutes. That's the only one I know about so far. Since we will have three generations attend would want activities for young and old.
Also would want to drive to Paducah to see the town our great grandfather lived in and operated the Rudy store there many years ago. Thanks for any information you can provide. Sue Fox

Since I didn't get ANY ideas for the family reunion my husband and I will be visiting the area soon to locate some possibilities.

Does anyone have any suggestion at all concerning the Lake Between the Lakes area? Or is it better perhaps to stay in Paducah itself OR even stay in Nashville and drive to Paducah for the day? I would appreciate any information you could provide.
Thanks so much and please help!

P.S.
Since our family is spread out throughout the country: Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, California and my husband and myself live in Dallas, we don't have any idea where to plan this reunion for approximately 60-70 members.
Many thanks again for your help,
S. Fox

This is a hard question to answer. Kids are hard to entertain. If you plan on renting a boat (which its starting to get a little cold for that) then I suppose staying between the lakes would be okay. You've got to decide to do you want to spend most of your time around the lakes or in Paducah. If I were you I would rent several rooms at the Residence Inn in Paducah and plan on taking the kids to the museums downtown. As far as LBL, you could spend a day at the Home Place or maybe drive to see the bison but unless you are into hiking, boating, or driving around and admiring nature then then the LBL might get to be a tad boring. And, the LBL is big, so if you plan on going to the Home Place, that's a pretty long drive. When it gets cold, the lakes region starts to get isolated. It's not like Destin, it's more oriented towards nature, etc.. .That's the best I can do. If you like shopping for art, then you will love Paducah.

Watchmanonthewall,
Thanks for the suggestions. Residence Inn being so new was not in my Tourbook for Ky/Tenn. but I did find it on the internet, so we will definitely visit and/or stay there l or 2 nights next week. Even though we will hold the reunion May or June, I'll need to find out if it's warm enough at that time for water sports. I like your suggestion of staying in Paducah and driving to the various locations since all ages will not enjoy the same activities and this Inn looks like a wonderful place to stay and organize our various schedules from there.
Thanks again for the heads up,
Sue Fox Rudy

Look for a good show at the Carson Four Rivers Center during your stay. They have some nice things coming. Grand Rivers where Green Turtle Bay is located is also a cool little town. They have a little theater there and Patti's is a great restaurant and place to take the kids as they have this recreational area next to it with lots of stuff for the kids to do.
