Downtown Covington is a vibrant downtown, which is a source of pride for the community. It has a unique blend of shopping and dining experiences; its beautiful historical buildings are centered on the green oasis of the Square Park, where on many occasions a wonderful concert or community event could be taking place. Also known as "The Original Hollywood of the South™," Downtown Covington has been the home to hundreds of television and film productions. "My wife and I had our honeymoon in Covington during Thanksgiving," stated Shane Graffia. "I've always wanted to see the town being that my favorite show is 'In The Heat of The Night.' We loved the scenery, and the small town atmosphere. Being there, sitting in the Square made us feel like we were in a movie or what I described as being in a 'Christmas Town,' like in a Hallmark Christmas show. We can't wait to return next year to visit once again." Victoria Grey Young remembers when she first visited Downtown Covington. "I first came to Covington in April of 2015 because of The Vampire Diaries and I kept coming back every 3 months since then. Covington is my happy place. It's like Disney World to me. I have the best memories here. I hope one day I can live in this sweet little town where the best memories are made." Downtown Covington is a great place to shop, dine, and discover!
