What Renters Like and Dislike About Covington

Community, town, neighbors, we love going to the local bars right outside of the bigger city it feels like a small town community but it is a bigger town close to a major city. It just feels I like home at the local restaurants and bars.

Lots of family, lots of people, stores are nearby so it's walkable. There is plenty of fest and fairs to join or go to during the summer time

There is an active police presence. There is a nearby coffee house. There is also a small market. There are a lot of families.

Very close to downtown, location to stores & employment, close too parks. Also very historical buildings & history.
