Covington

Geolocation

The alluring town of Covington stands at the border of two Louisianas. The first, to the south, is flat and wet, home to New Orleans, and rooted in a French-Catholic culture. North of town is hilly and piney--- a farm country rooted in an Anglo-Protestant tradition. In Covington, you get the best of both worlds. It has top-notch white tablecloth restaurants, boutique shopping and the calendar is filled with a lively cultural scene of gallery openings, main street goings-on and the annual Three Rivers Arts Festival. This historic city is set on the Bogue Falaya River, where Columbia Street Landing holds community events, and from which there’s access to Lake Pontchartrain. But, with its proximity to country life, Covington is also a launch point for natural excursions, connecting to miles of the Tammany Trace’s green-drenched hiking and biking trails. Just a short drive away, horses cavort on rolling, pastured farms.
