Downtown Covington combines the very best of old and new. A remarkable mix of Victorian architecture defines the downtown district and the tree filled square park is the site for many of Covington's signature events. It is a downtown where the storeowners are your neighbors, and they treat you like one.
Enjoy shopping at one of the most vibrant retailing destinations on the I-20 Corridor. Enjoy shopping at innovative home décor stores, a Toy Store that will delight, a gallery stocked with the finest art from the region, specialty clothing and accessory stores and there are many health and beauty services to be found in the downtown.
There are dining choices that will satisfy everyone’s appetites whether it is Mr. Hamm’s famous fried chicken and vegetables at the Town House Café, a pizza from Amici Italian Café, a barbeque plate from Bradley’s Barbeque or a night out with Chef R.L. at R.L.’s Off the Square, there is something for every palate in Downtown Covington. Don’t forget to leave time for a stroll around the downtown while you enjoy a hand dipped cone from Scoops.
Downtown Revitalization For close to twenty years the Main Street Covington program has been charged with developing a public/private partnership to preserve the historical fabric of the downtown district and promote and facilitate its economic revitalization. An active board of directors and volunteer stakeholders joined by community partners recruit business, develop both community and retailing events, and promote the preservation of the historic buildings in the district and initiate design and streetscape projects to further enhance the district.
