What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Covington

My neighborhood is right in the middle of where the Vampire Diaries were filmed. We have a Scoops ice cream Shop on the square that is a beautiful spot for families to go.

It is right across the street from a Dollar general and a few gas stations farther down but close and it is fun to walk to stores and get things and walk back

Close to everything. Everybody knows everybody. Police across street. Same things I've stated in other questions.

Very quiet and don't have to worry about danger nearby. Very secure not only the neighborhood but individual security for the houses

Whats unique is the space you have to go out and walk around or your kids to go play. It's very open.

Its a very small subdivision, few cars park on the street. You don't even know if your neighbor is home or not, & we're very friendly & helpful towards each other.
