The small town of Helena dates back to 1833, and was once a bustling, thriving southern city. Today, Helena would seem to some as a town that time forgot. While the rest of the country was building shopping centers and interstate systems, Helena struggled to stay afloat amidst all of the progress. Big changes drew small businesses away from Main Street U.S.A. and into strip malls. Convenience took over, where simplicity once stood. Today, Helena is in the throes of a revival. With quirky boutiques, unique stores and a historic musical past, Helena remains proud of the life they continue to successfully sprout from the ruins of the past. For in through the dust and rubble, new life for this determined Southern town is emerging.
At the heart of America's inland waterways, the river contributes to the constant flow of Paducah's engaging energy and fascinating history. From the colourful revitalization of the Lower Town Arts District to the vibrant streets of 19th Century architecture in Historic Downtown. Here you can immerse yourself in rich American heritage and a globally-celebrated creative culture.
Sarah Savage has been excellent throughout, from our initial enquiry to confirmation of our booking. Nothing has been too much trouble, and we did have a lot of questions! I hope our great experience continues as we move forward to the actual holiday dates.
