The perfect blend of history, commerce, people and fun.

COVINGTON'S THRIVING DOWNTOWN IS A REMINDER OF HOW A COMMUNITY SHOULD FEEL.

A city’s downtown should be a diverse melting pot of people, entertainment, and history. It should tie the present with the past, and history with renewal. Whether it’s the shops, shop owners,community events, restaurants or local art, everything and everyone has a story to share. Creating and maintaining a flourishing downtown culture ties visitor with place and makes them feel a part of that story.

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 that delight residents and visitors alike. Downtown's beautiful historical buildings are centered around the green oasis of the Square Park, where on many occasions wonderful concerts and community events take place throughout the year. Downtown Covington was named one of the Prettiest Small Towns in Georgia by Southern Living Magazine in 2017, and it was voted Best Town Square in Atlanta by the readers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2018. Referred to as "The Hollywood of the South," Downtown Covington has remained a gorgeous backdrop for over 100 films and television shows to date like "The Vampire Diaries," "In the Heat of the Night," "Dukes of Hazzard" and many more.
