Best Places for Fall Foliage from Paducah, KY

Fall has returned to Paducah, and that means it’s time to get out on the road and check out some of the wonderful fall foliage that Kentucky has to offer. If you’re looking to drink in the colors, sounds, and smells of autumn, these are some of the best spots to do it.

Country Music Highway

You don’t have to be a fan of country music to take a trip down the Country Music Highway, aka the US-23 National Scenic Byway, but it sure doesn’t hurt. This 144-mile stretch is packed with points of interest for country music fans, and it’s especially beautiful during the fall months thanks to the gorgeous foliage you’ll see along the way. This spot is a good distance from Paducah, but it’s well worth it if you’re in need of a fall road trip.

Woodlands Trace

Woodlands Trace is a locale for fall foliage that’s quite a bit closer to Paducah. A scant 25 minutes away, KY-453 slices through the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, which means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to hike once you find a spot to park. Or if you’re just in the mood to cruise and listen to some music, this 43-mile stretch will hit the spot.

If you’ve got fall travel plans but need a better ride for the journeys ahead, contact Chip Wynn Motors in Paducah, Kentucky. We can change you into a fresher vehicle before the leaves change colors.

Fun Road Trip Games for the Family

Road Trip Games
If you are planning a road trip with your young ones, we at Chip Wynn Motors have a few fun road trip games that might help pass the time.

Whether it’s for the holidays or not until the spring and summer, chances are good that if you have a family with young children you’ll be taking a road trip sometime soon, and looking for ways to keep the young ones entertained. We at Chip Wynn Motors have a few fun road trip games that might help pass the time.

  • 20 Questions: One person thinks of a person, place, or thing (like asparagus, the mailman, or the Sydney Opera House), and everyone else works together asking 20 yes or no questions to try to guess what that person is thinking of. This is a challenging but team-building activity for kids 8 and up.
  • Traffic Bingo: Younger kids may like this game. Instead of regular bingo, kids will mark off fun things on their cards like “dog in a car” or “blue billboard” or “license plate from Ohio” as they spot them. Just be sure to have lots of fun prizes.
  • Storytime: Rather than read a story, have the whole car work together to create a story, one word at a time. Start with the driver and go clockwise around the car contributing words to piece together a fun story.
