We went to the riverfront this morning because 2 of the "Queens" were going to be in port together, but as soon as we pulled up down there it started to rain buckets. I guess we'll have to wait for another day to see them here together. There are 31 "Queen" dockings taking place this year in Paducah, we'll wait for a better day I guess!
This is a picture from when we saw the American "Queen" paddle boat in port for the day, back in October 2014:
I been to Paducah several times while in western Ky but I've never made the time to go look downtown or at the water front. I'll definantly make time for it next year though.

Kentucky does have the most navigable waterways outside of Alaska and you can't go wrong with any of them. I think a hidden gem is the Nolin Lake area in Grayson/Hart Counties. It is a nice and overall scenic region with rolling hills, winding rivers, and valleys. There are a lot of caves in the area as well and Mammoth Cave isn't too far away either. It is also pretty isolated from the larger towns in that area so it gives you a good chance to get away from it all for a weekend or so.

When you get to the river in Paducah don't forget to check out the murals on the floodwall. They tell the history of Paducah. Pretty interesting

Fivenine, don't forget Kentucky has the largest lake east of the Mississippi by acreage (Kentucky Lake, 160,309 acres) and Lake Cumberland, " The reservoir ranks 9th in the U.S. in size, with a capacity of 6,100,000 acre feet of water, enough to cover the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky with 3 inches of water. "
(Wikipedia)

This shows why I hate fishing off the bank in Ky. Lake. I'm in one spot on the side of the lake and the stupid fish have over 160,000 acres of water to get away! lol
