See Some of the Best Spots in Covington on Foot This Summer
Covington’s 19 neighborhoods are filled with unique history, beautiful architecture, vibrant artwork, and much more. COV200, the group charged with organizing the city’s bicentennial celebration, is spotlighting this rich culture by organizing self-guided walking tours with background on places of interest throughout the city.
Sites are still being added to the tours, and COV200 is looking for suggestions of places that shouldn’t be missed. Currently, tour themes include architecture, arts and culture, faith, historic sites, neighborhoods, and unexpected Covington. Once finalized, the tours will be hosted online on a mobile-friendly site.
Individuals are invited to visit here to submit their ideas. Submissions are due by Friday, July 3. All submissions must include the address, neighborhood, brief description, and a high-resolution picture emailed to [email protected].
