New Home Communities in Covington

When your city is the home of the longest bridge in the world--that would be Lake Pontchartrain Causeway--your future is virtually assured. At least, that's how the residents of Covington see it. The Causeway links just two parishes, yet somehow brings the whole city of New Orleans together. Increasingly, the town of Covington is an essential part of the New Orleans story, as many New Orleans residents seek out the peace and quiet of Covington while staying close to The Big Easy.

As more of the talented New Orleans population moves into Covington, the dining scene here has exploded with traditional flavors, which is good news for anyone who likes their suburb to reflect the culture of the city itself. Local food, produced by local chefs, is becoming ever more popular. For an example, just look at the success of Abita Brew Pub, a local brewery offering a taste of Louisiana. Free tours of the brewery complete the experience of a tasting. If you prefer restaurants to bars, Artesia specializes in French food served in a farmhouse. There's even more to explore near the Colombia Street Landing harbor, a local gathering place since the inception of Covington.

Love the great outdoors? So do most Covington residents. Whenever they need a fix, they head to Fontainebleau State Park on the shores of the lake. It's a 27000-acre paradise for water-lovers. If you would rather break out the bike or your running shoes and just go, go, go, Tammany Trace has what you need--in this case, a ten-foot-wide paved trail.

The city also has a formidable connection to the dramatic arts. Covington's business-friendly climate has always attracted entrepreneurs. More recently it has attracted filmmakers, writers, actors, and directors. Movies filmed in Covington include "I Love You Philip Morris" and "Kingfish: A Story of Huey Long," and more recently, "The Lucky One," inspired by a Nicholas Sparks novel. Actor Ian Somerhalder, best known for his work on The Vampire Diaries, is a Covington native.

Finally, if you're a parent, this one fact will sway you more than any other to life in Covington: Saint Tammany Parish is one of the very best school systems in the entire state. Covington excels in many ways: from its proximity to the city, to its thriving business climate, to its delicious Cajun food. But the best part of Covington really can't be captured in terms of what you'd see on a tourism brochure. You have to live here to experience it.

Covington will make a great home for you and your family, and New Home Source can help you find your place in this beautiful Louisiana town.
