I mean Covington has it's bad parts. I know it has a crime problem but it's not HORRIBLE. There's places in Cincy MUCh worse then Covington.

I have never been to either area. Which city would be best fit my lifestyle.
Me and my wife enjoy the outdoors fishing, camping. We would also like to have a large city within an hours drive, which of these two citys would best fits our lifestyles.
I actually live in Covington and I can honestly say I hate it. Florence is much nicer.

Depends on what you want. If you want a McMansion built from fiber board and Elmer's Glue, go Florence. If you want a historic home that has a decade of history and a whole lot of character and sturdiness just blocks from the Ohio River in a safe setting (most of Covington's "bad" parts are very clustered together) go for Covington.

Definitely Florence is closest to that lifestyle but quickly becoming a little city with the mall and close to the airport. Big Bone state park is south past Union, General Butler State park is in Carrollton along the Ohio River. Kincaid Lake park in Pendleton County with Williamstown Lake in Grant. You'll probably be happier south of Florence on the I-75 and/or I-71 corridor to get to them the easiest, but all 3 Northern most counties have nice spaces the more south you go, not to mention, cheaper. Good Luck.
