What Renters Like and Dislike About Paducah

We are within 5 minutes of school, restaurants, movies, and parks. All the kids are around the same age and love playing together.

It is a quiet neighborhood with a lot of landscape and not a lot of traffic. It is secluded but yet it is easy to access amenities.
