National Magazine is Hot on Covington: Names City as Cincinnati's Best Suburb

Well, it's safe to say that Thrillist is hot on Covington right now.

Last week, the national digital magazine named Northern Kentucky's largest city as the most underrated place in the Commonwealth.

Now it has even more positive words for Covington in a new article published a few days agoThrillist identified the best suburb in each of the 35 largest U.S. metro areas and in Cincinnati, the choice was the Cov:

As the popular adage goes: if you can buy land at the confluence of two rivers, preferably in the Upland South region of the United States, do it. And so it goes for Covington, which sits at the absolute top of Northern Kentucky on the Ohio and Licking Rivers. Here in MLB umpire Randy Marsh's hometown, you're getting the benefits of being a short jog away from Cinci (literally less than two miles over the Ohio River from Downtown to Downtown) but in a smaller town with 12 historic districts and cheaper property taxes (for homeowners) than you'd pay on the Ohio side. In the MainStrasse historic district, you'll find legit city food at places like chef Stephen Williams' Bouquet and serious brunch (get the BLFGT) at Otto's. Plus, before hitting Madison Theater (an old-timey movie house restored into a concert venue), get drinks and street tacos or Sriracha wings at Inspirado, which features local art you can buy during dinner on the walls, complete with an on-site curator. And, you know, drinks and stuff.
