Where is your favorite river/water front in the State and why? I'd enjoy seeing pictures too if you can find them.

What city on the Ohio river? Or do you mean just the river as a whole? I definntly agree with LBL, I've been going there every year for as long as I can remember.

Mainly the river as a whole, but I am particularly fond of the waterfront in Louisville. I hear good things about the waterfront in Paducah, but have not ever been there before.

I would have to vote for the Paducah river front.
Especially when one of the "Queens" is in port. It really is a sight to see when they come in, and everyone disembarks for a day of adventure in Paducah.
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:

Moss Creek day beach in the LBL. It's about a mile or so south of the northern welcome station. Nice river gravel beach to swim in and shady areas with a great breeze to relax and watch the swimmers and boats.
Another nice spot is Rockcastle, on Barkley, near Cadiz. Besides a nice little beach and picnic area, there's a nice huge bluff where you can sit looking out over the water.
One more suggestion and I'll hush. lol Columbus Belmont State Park, a Civil War battlefield overlooking the Mississippi River. My parents and others used to enjoy driving over and sitting in the main shelter watching the sun set in Missouri.

I have been wanting to visit Columbus Belmont State Park for a while now, but have been reluctant considering how far it is from me. I will have to make a visit out there soon.

Good call Gman! Columbus Belmont is a GREAT park that overlooks the Mississippi. We love the Civil War Re-enactment, it is really a good time. Thanks for the reminder!

Without a doubt, Lake Cumberland for me. It's super clean, nice water, nice houseboat "community" and always a blast to ride my jet ski on it!

That's my favorite place to swim, when you can find an open space lol. I've been wanting to drive over to there but I haven't ever mad it over there yet.
