The town of Covington is in a perfect location positioned between all that New Orleans has to offer and the “bedroom community” of the Northshore, close to shopping, dining, and entertainment but without the congestion of living in a bigger city. Residents of this historic city can access recreational activities such as boating, fishing, and swimming in Lake Pontchartrain, the Bogue Falaya River and the Tchefuncte River, as well as biking, running, walking, or riding on the many miles of the Tammany Trace.
The commercial district of Covington, Louisiana, also includes top-notch restaurants, boutique shopping and depth of culture with gallery openings, theater productions, the Annual Three River Festival, and the Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival.
If you are a fine dining connoisseur the area offers many white table restaurants from which to choose, such as DiCristina’s Italian and Seafood Restaurant, Toad Hollow, Keith Young’s Steakhouse and The Dakota. If you want a sit-down casual dining experience, homeowners can visit Olive Garden, The Chimes-Covington, Lola, Del Porto, Osaka West Japanese Sushi & Hibachi Restaurant, Bear’s Restaurant, Chili’s and too many more to mention.
