HotelTonight – Paducah Hotels

Recently, I found myself in Paducah with a free afternoon, because a friend I was meeting had to cancel plans at the last minute. Instead of heading back home, I decided to spend the day exploring Paducah and seeing what the city had to offer. I knew I wouldn't have any problem finding a place to stay, thanks to the HotelTonight app, which left me free to enjoy a day exploring the city of Paducah.

The Area

Paducah is the county seat of McCracken County in western Kentucky, near the border with Illinois. The town has a population of just over 25,000 people and is one of the most exciting cities in the area. The town lies on the banks of the Ohio River and is surrounded by beautiful scenery. As I pulled into town, I was surprised at how many things there were to see and do in Paducah. It originally looked like a sleepy little country town, but I quickly realized that Paducah was filled with a lot of fun and exciting activities, that make it a great place to visit.

Things to Do

I started off my day in Paducah with a visit to the River Discovery Center. The center is really cool and has several exhibits on the history of the area, and the importance that rivers play in the ecosystem. I visited a few other museums in town that detail the history of the area and some of the things that have played an important role in the growth of the town, such as the railroad. After visiting a few museums, I decided to visit a few of the art galleries in town. Paducah has an exciting art culture, and I loved visiting the several galleries in town.

The Food

After my day of exploring Paducah, I was feeling hungry and wanted to get something to eat. I asked around and several people recommended I dine at a local Italian restaurant. I was so glad I listened to the advice of the locals, because the food was amazing. Everything on the menu looked delicious, but I ordered the manicotti, and it was some of the best manicotti I think I've ever had. I'll be sure to recommend that place to anyone I know who visits Paducah.

HotelTonight – Book Paducah Hotels at the Drop of a Hat

Once I'd finished dinner, I was feeling tired and wanted to get some rest. In the past, I've had problems booking a hotel room at the last minute, but with the easy-to-use HotelTonight app, there was nothing to worry about. I opened up the app and, in a few minutes, I'd booked a nice hotel room in town. That night, as I relaxed and thought back on my day, I was so glad I'd decided to spend the day in Paducah, even though my plans fell through. It's a great city with so much to do. I'll be sure to visit Paducah again soon.
