    Suggestions needed for trip to Paducah -

    Going through Padukah next month and definitely want to stop at some quilt shops. My DH and DGDs will be with me and the DGDs run low on patience in quilt shops. If you had to pick only a couple of shops to go to, what would your suggestions be?

    no quilt shops, but just south of Paducah is an area called land between the lakes that is beautiful...small town there with great restaurants that even hubby might like. Maybe someone from the area can provide the name of the town.

    I would include the quilt museum if for nothing else than the quilt stained glass windows.

    Are you talking about Patti's Settlement in Grand Rivers?

    while you are shopping in Paducah, send hubby and the kids to tour the murals along the river - totally fascinating.

    Gander Mountain and the mall just off exit 4, you could drop them off while you visit Hancocks of Paducah then get the before you go downtown to the museum and E.Burns shop. Whaler's Catch is across from the museum. Good food and grown up drinks and family friendly.

    Carol Bayer Fallert has a shop in Paducah. Quilt in a Day, Hancocks, and the quilt museum. Several small nice quilt shops down the street from the museum in the historic part of town. Send your crew on ahead, rent a car and meet up with them later. I have done this several times when DH gets in a hurry to get there when there is no big reason to get there. I stop at every interesting place I see. I catch up with him and all he did was wait for me to get there. He hurried up to wait. LOL.
    Got fabric?

    Hancock's and Eleanor Burns and the Museum, and as others have mentioned, several smaller shops near the museum...Downtown has candy, ice cream stores and Kirchoff's Bakery (great lunches) The floodwall has historical murals and tons of antique shops to keep folks interested while you're playing in quilts. here's a decent mall about 1/2 mile from Hancock's that has any number of diversions for men and youngsters. Grand rivers is the little town near the Lakes and Patti's Settlement is a great place to shop and eat.

    You did not say how old the children are - but doubt if many would enjoy the quilt museum. Hancocks of Paducah and Quilt in a Day would be my must see shops. Bragging a bit here - but my daughter got married at Patti's 1880's Settlement in 2009 - in the gazebo - it was a "destination wedding" - all we (the family) and guests had to do was show up. (And supply the money - LOL) It was so beautiful - she hired the Patti's wedding planner.
