History

Historically, the first American settlement was known as "The Point" because the place where Covington started was at the confluence of the Ohio and Licking rivers. 

A few years after, in 1815, the place was dubbed as "Covington" in honor of General Leonard Covington, who died in battle during the War of 1812. 

From a small town, its status was later raised as a city in 1834 where it continued to develop thanks to the wealth it gained from selling northern Kentucky’s tobaccos and cigars.  By 1900, this city has become the second largest city and industrial region in Kentucky. 

Present day, it is now the most populous city in Kenton County.

Area and Lifestyle

As the old saying goes, "It’s favorable to buy land at the confluence of rivers, especially in areas in the Upland Southern parts of the U.S". Thus the reason why lots of people flocked to Covington decades ago. 

Nowadays people also like living in this city because it’s only a few miles away from downtown Cinci. Literally, like it’s just a few jogs away.

Well, the location is one thing, but another reason why people love this city is its legit food and drink places. One of which is the Bouquet Restaurant by famous chef Stephen Williams. Another great place to dine is the Otto’s, a chic American bistro well-known for its fried green tomatoes and Sunday brunch. 

For a taste of eclectic, fine-dining cuisine you can try Inspirado. Here, you can get your old time favorite BLT or some yummy street tacos with a few bottles of beer. Furthermore, you can feast your eyes to some local artworks displayed which you can actually buy. They even have an on-site curator to assist you. Isn’t that amazing?

Moving on, you can head down to Main Strasse Village, a kitschy village with plenty of restored 19th century houses, stores and restaurants. Once there, you’ll find that it looks a lot like those German villages which you can watch in movies. There is a total of 12 historic districts located in Covington so lovers of old culture and history will definitely lose themselves here.

In the downtown, you’ll find everything you need plus for some evening entertainment, there’s Madison Theater. It’s an old movie house which was repurposed into a concert venue
