While visiting Paducah, a visit to the waterfront is a must ... and since it is impossible to miss, the Floodwall Murals are an Excellent display of history! Please do not be in the area of Paducah and not make this stop!

It is perhaps 2-3 blocks and is easily walkable.
Can you give me any information about parking in the mural area? We're stopping at a motel near I-24 and would like to drive in and see them the next morning.
