      What Makes Covington, KY a Great Place to Live?
      Covington has lots of great activities if you want something interesting or entertaining to do on the weekends. You'll find lots of great food in the city as well, which makes being a Covington resident pretty worthwhile. Attractions like Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption is an ideal attraction when friends and family come into town, since the architecture is so intricate and has such a rich history.

      The city is also less than a mile away from the Great American Ball Park, making Covington the perfect place to see a baseball game. Another great attraction is the Hall of Fame and Museum for the Cincinnati Reds, which has all types of artifacts and interesting information about the home team.

      I also enjoy Covington because there are several tours that focus on the local restaurant and art attractions. Even when you live in the city, it can be challenging to see everything that Covington has to offer, and the tours are a great way to see more than one attraction in a day's time.
