Mainstrass Village

Centered around Covington's old German area, the Mainstrass Village is a historic district. It has a collection of unique shops and restaurants set in a neighborhood of parks and Victorian and Classic Italianate homes of the to late 1800.  Designated a national historic district, the City of Covington and the Northern Kentucky Convention and Visitor's Bureau initiated the development of the area in the late 1970s. Improvements, including the 100-foot Carroll Chimes Bell Tower, the Goose Girl Fountain and the Northern Kentucky Visitor's Center, became reality. The area is continuing to expand and has been improved and beautified with the addition of trees and walkways. There area numerous annual events and festivals that are held here. One of my favorite thing is the Bell Tower Clock. It is so neat to watch it and listen to the story it tells. I love going to Mainstrass Village there is always something to do and see.
