Hendron Reviews

2 reviews
This was a great area to experience my childhood years. The school system was great and this area is very into High School sports. The whole area is very willing to show their school spirit while also showing up for the rivalry games. I would definitely live here again if I had to do it over. People from all over the world come to Paducah for various things, one of the main ones being the Quilt Show every year. People are fascinated with our town and the character it possesses. We also have traditions that are very appealing to others such as BBQ on the River. This is a big festival in downtown Paducah where numerous stands are set up and competitions are held. Paducah continues to grow and expand. In my twenty years of living here, it has made very vast changes. The area continues to get new restaurants and businesses.

I feel that the Paducah Police are very visible and their presence is known. Paducah doesn't have the typical crime rates as other areas of our size. I have never felt unsafe in this area, whether it be downtown Paducah or out by the mall area. I do not have any concerns regarding Crime and Safety for Paducah.
