PADUCAH, KY – People gathered to watch The American Queen depart from Paducah’s riverfront last night on November 4th, 2017.

This mighty five-story vessel is the biggest riverboat ever built and more like a floating luxury hotel than a riverboat.

Watching riverboats, barges and other boats travel up and the down the Ohio River is relaxing and one of the many things you can when you visiting downtown Paducah.

Last night there were more than a few cars along the Foot of Broadway waiting for the cruiser to take sail. It’s departure was scheduled for 5:00 pm but it was closer to 6:00 pm when it finally left.
