Paducah received word earlier this month and sent an award plaque to the Convention and Visitors Bureau. The award was completely reader-driven. Midwest Traveler highlighted Paducah’s arts district and attractions like the National Quilt Museum and National Heritage Museum as reasons for the honor.
