Covington Georgia can be easily described as picturesque; and that is only one of the reasons it has been deemed the Hollywood of the South. The Hollywood of the South has gained such a respected reputation that it has been featured in the official Georgia Travel Guide for 2015! Covington is a unique community that is surrounded by antique brick features as well as Civil War era antebellum homes.

Only a few blocks from Covington’s downtown, you will find a variety of antebellum mansions that will take you back in time to the 19th century. The antebellum mansions that surround Covington could be out of a movie (and several times they are); with large white columns and perfect landscaping, Covington, the Hollywood of the South, is the perfect destination for film productions and tourists alike.
Covington has some of the oldest architecture still standing in the South, but its old time architecture is not the only thing that makes Covington unique. Covington would not be the Hollywood of the South without its welcoming, southern hospitality. Covington is home to one of the kindest communities you will ever travel through; thus, making it a warm and welcoming destination for all.
Put traveling to the Hollywood of the South on your 2015 to-do list. Its rare, historical properties and homes will make it a once in a lifetime opportunity. When you arrive, be sure to casually meander around the square park in downtown, tour the original Covington courthouse built in 1884, and take a stroll through the exquisite antebellum neighborhoods that will take you back in time.
