Covington does have a small downtown with a few coffee houses and restaurants, but most of the restaurants are on US Hwy 190, a few miles south of downtown. There are many nice areas where professionals live in Covington. Many styles of housing and price ranges. I'd be happy to discuss your son's upcoming relocation with him and assist him with the move. More information about him would be necessary to help him and give the best advice. He can call or text 504-302-0716, or email me at scot@ scothughes.com.
