Located along the Connecticut coastline just over an hour from the city of New Haven, rests the once sleepy little seaside town of Covington Connecticut. Tucked along Dover Bay, Covington boasts a population of roughly 209,779 souls, as determined by the 2010 United States Census. Covington was established in 1703.

Covington is home of Pearson University. As Covington’s biggest taxpayer and employer, Pearson serves as an integral part of the city's economy, followed by Health care (hospitals and biotechnology), professional services (legal, architectural, marketing, and engineering), financial services, and retail trade, all contributing to the city's blooming economy. Furthermore, Covington bills itself as a "Cultural Capital" regarding the number of established theaters, museums, and music venues it has to offer.

Covington’s most notable and popular geographic feature is its large harbor, Dover Bay. Directly to the east of Covington proper rests Warwick Park, a well-loved treasure-trove of towering trees, natural rock formations and miles of hiking trails.

Covington enjoys a temperate climate. The city has long, hot summers, and cool to cold winters. From May to late September, the weather is typically hot and humid, with average temperatures exceeding 80 °F (27 °C). Summers are warm and humid with frequent thundershowers. October to early December is normally mild to cool late in the season, while early spring (April) can be cool to warm. Winters are moderately cold with both rain and snow fall. During summer heat waves, temperatures may reach 95 °F (35 °C) or higher on occasion with heat-index values of over 100 °F (38 °C).
