Did you know that Covington is known as "Hollywood South"? Over 45 movies and television shows have been and are being filmed in our picturesque little town. We are currently the filming The Vampire Diaries around town so you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of one of the stars.
Covington and Newton County are home to some of the most beautiful Antebelluem homes in the entire South. Our Chamber of Commerce has some wonderful tours of our historic homes available. Please make sure to advise us if you would like a tour arranged because a certain quantity must be met.
