Downtown Covington at Glance

Downtown Covington combines the very best of the old and the 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 like it used to be, where the storeowners are your neighbors, and they treat you like one.


Downtown Retail
Enjoy shopping at one of the most vibrant retailing destinations on the I20 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

Downtown Dining
There are dining choices that will satisfy everyone’s appetites whether it is the lunch counter at a Touch of Country, or Mr. Hamm’s famous fried chicken and vegetable at the Town House Café, a New York Style deli, 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. Don’t forget to leave time for a stroll round 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, promote and incent the preservation of the historic buildings in the district and initiate design and streetscape projects to further enhance the district.
