Hotels in Covington, LA
Covington is a charming city set in the St. Tammany Parish. Situated just inland of Lake Pontchartrain, Covington is less than an hour north of the New Orleans metropolitan area.
Visitors of Covington enjoy fun, family visits to the Fontainebleau State Park – a beachfront park featuring picnicking, fishing, and more – and the always fascinating Global Wildlife Center. Further outdoor recreation is found on the Covington Trailhead and Tammany Trace – a paved trail winding through Abita Springs, Covington, and Mandeville.
Head across the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway for a day in New Orleans, where you can check out the Big Easy's famed sports teams or explore the French Quarter. List the French Market, Jackson Square, and Bourbon Street on your French Quarter itinerary, or check out anticipated New Orleans festivals like the Satchmo Summer Fest and, of course, Mardi Gras.
For a uniquely Louisianan experience, be sure to visit the Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery – offering up close views of a "working louisiana alligator farm." For a fun night out in Covington, don't miss the Sunset at the Landing Concert Series – held every third Friday from March through October.
