Charming Colonial Streets of San Juan Go Car Free

I’ve had a soft spot for Puerto Rico since taking a work trip there four or five years ago. I’d heard some negative things about the island, which many people seemed to think of as a third-rate part of the Caribbean, but I found much to enjoy — the natural beauty of its coastlines and rainforests, the charming and lively capital of San Juan, not to mention the mofongo and the rum. Fending with the traffic, however, was hardly a highlight. “People complain about traffic jams, but they see congestion as a sign of progress,” an environmentally minded priest told me at the time. Now it seems that attitude may be changing for the better.

Why Live in the Fountain Avenue Neighborhood?


Across the nation there is a growing trend of people moving back to the city core. You can now take advantage of this rapidly growing trend. The City of Paducah is committed to revitalizing its older neighborhoods and transforming them back to the grandeur the community once enjoyed. Lowertown was the first undertaking of this effort and the community as a whole has embraced its great success. The Fountain Avenue project offers anyone interested the opportunity to be a part of the new old neighborhood (neotraditional) renaissance.
