Me and Steven took another quick weekend away. This time to Paducah Kentucky.
It was a very easy drive, just a bit over 2 hours away. We stayed in AirBnB duplex, Amy was our host. This was a perfect place for our weekend away. Super clean, nice linens, little snacks, extra bathroom necessities, everything we needed to fix breakfast (pots, pans, plates, cups, etc.) I didn’t have to reach out to Amy because everything was perfect, but she did leave instructions in case we needed to. Our favorite place was sitting on the back porch. Even though it was hot out, she had fans that made it comfortable. It’s in a quite neighborhood. Still close enough to the main part of town with nice restaurants.
Just across the bridge is Metropolis Illinois. The Super Museum has been on our wish list for sometime. The town has completely embraced Superman. It was such a cool thing to see. After we took pictures in front of the GIANT Superman, we went into the Hidden Gems Novelty and Collectibles. This store not only has Superman memorabilia but a bit of every fandom. It’s probably a good thing I don’t live closer.
We grabbed a quick bit to eat at El Toro Loco, then headed to the Super Museum. There’s a bit of everything Superman, Smallville, Supergirl, Lois and Clark, etc. It was such a cool stop during our weekend out.
Thank goodness the National Quilt Museum was open on Sundays. It’s located right off the riverfront in Paducah. As a lover of quilts, it was a must. The quilts on display are from all over the world.. I was luck enough to be there during the Australia Wide Seven, New Quilts from an old favorite, and the Follow the thread exhibits. It was a true inspiration.
