We love major cities, but the true heartbeat of Louisiana lies in our small towns. From Homer to Hopedale, Louisiana has some truly charming small towns that give you a glimpse into what living in Louisiana is like, and one of our favorite small towns is Covington. With a population that hovers just north of 10,000 people, Covington is the best of both worlds: you still have all of the amenities that larger cities are known for while still feeling like you’re in a small town, especially the downtown area. Here are some of our favorite things to do in Covington.
