Two Rivers Meet In A Fascinating Confluence In Charming Paducah, Kentucky
Since Kentucky’s northern border is formed by a river, it only makes sense that there are many cities and towns that have a close relationship with this body of water. The Ohio River and its tributaries were a big reason many of these communities were founded, including the charming Kentucky town of Paducah. Situated in western Kentucky, this city marks the point where the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers join in a fascinating confluence, which is depicted below. Paducah also happens to be a wonderful place to visit for its river history, artistic flair, welcoming people, and all-around charm.
