Covington

Few cities balance progress and preservation like Covington, which celebrated a bicentennial in 2015.

The shining 22-story Ascent at Roebling’s Bridge is a symbol of its own rapid growth as Northern Kentucky’s largest city. Art and music thrive in a revitalized historic core. A forthcoming riverfront complex promises to complement the city’s long-cherished MainStrasse Village. And 700-acre Devou Park, with its breathtaking views of downtown, overlooks it all.
 
Amidst such exciting change, preserved treasures — from the dazzling Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption to the quirky Behringer-Crawford Museum — reflect on Covington’s storied past. Turn-of-the century mansions and row houses mark the convergence of the Licking and Ohio Rivers, a critical link in the ambitious Licking River Greenway and Trails project.
