The Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau has produced a video to entice tourists as well as local Paducahans to see parts of the city’s history come to life.

The video “Paducah Signature Experiences” features the River Discovery Center, Lloyd Tilghman House and Civil War Museum, Hotel Metropolitan, the Flood Wall Murals and the National Quilt Museum.

CVB Sales Director Fowler Black, the featured guide in the video, says it’s an invitation to understand the city’s significance on a deeper level.

“So this is to break into the visitor’s, or even a local’s, emotional bank account and allow them to be affected by something going beyond show-and-tell into a more immersive experience," said Black. “To take a deeper dive into attributes, things that a place is known for like quilting, or the river, or the bedrock of our narrative the Civil War history here.  Or even untold stories like the Hotel Metropolitan.” 

Black says he’s excited to hear visitor response to the Signature Experience video, produced by Chicago-based Forward Motion Media.

The video can be seen at a Paducah.Travel.
