A Perfect Picnic

Check out the Covington Farmers Market at Covington City Hall on Saturday mornings or on Wednesday afternoons at the Covington Trailhead. Make it even more fun by daring each other to try something you haven't eaten before.

Get up before dawn so you can enjoy a sunrise picnic and together you can watch the world wake up around you. 

Kayak in the Tchefuncte

Both outfitters have experienced guides to take you down the bayou or river. If you're feeling more romantic you can sign up for the popular Twilight or Moonlight Paddles and if its privacy you're looking for, rent a kayak and do some self-guided exploring on your own. 

Bike Down the Trace
