here we grow!

Braxton Brewing Company, the newest entree of the superb craft brewing renaissance in the region, opened in 2015 in downtown Covington. Not only known for their incredible beers, the brewery is an amazing event and meeting space.

Boone County Distilling

Now with even more bourbon! Welcome Boone County Distilling the newest gem in NKY's spirited craft distillery boom.  

NKY is burbling with great new hotel development including the new Aloft at Newport on the Levee, the new Hampton Inn at Newport on the Levee and our newest boutique hotel, Hotel Covington. These new properties are now open!  

And speaking of  Newport on the Levee, they are currently doing an $80 million expansion, Aqua at the Levee, which will add more incredible restaurants and entertainment on the riverfront. 


Ark Encounter

One of the most awaited new attraction--now open-- just to our south, the Ark Encounter. This life-size reproduction of Noah's Ark is planned to be a one-of-a-kind themed attraction and will become the largest timber structure in the world. 

Our riverfront is one of our most valuable resources and we are excited about the 11.5-mile biking & walking trail, Riverfront Commons, which will link all of our river cities and provide even better access along and across our river.
