City Guide for Covington, WA

"It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent." Ñ _Dave Barry, _American humorist

Rain is a regular occurrence in the state of Washington, so don't rent a tent here. Weather is one of the reasons Washington grows more apples than any other state in the country. The familiar number of residents of Covington live just 25 miles southeast of Seattle but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the bigger city. A bit warmer by a few degrees than Seattle, it lies inland in a lovely pastoral setting. Whether you find an apartment on the west side of town, or discover a house to rent near one of the many parks in Covington, go walking along the tree-lined paths. Shop till you drop in Seattle, but enjoy charming small shops and restaurants in Covington. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with parking in Covington, WA

Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Covington apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.

Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.

Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.

If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.

Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.

Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.

Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
