I have lived in Erlanger for four years now, and I am very fond of the neighborhood. It is very peaceful, quiet, and serene. The schools within Erlanger are all very excellent, having gone through middle and high school within Erlanger.

My family and I enjoy our lives here at Erlanger. The neighbors we've had are all wonderful people! It is much safer than my former neighborhood, so I highly recommend living here if you're looking to escape a higher crime location. The police station is only five minutes away overall.

To those seeking nightlives, this would be one of Erlanger's weaknesses. The closest area for nightlife experiences would be in Cincinnati, but Erlanger is located 15-20 away, depending on where you are.

Overall, Erlanger is a superb suburb, and my family and I look to continue living here for several more years to come.

I cannot say enough about this amazing city. With the feel of a small town, wonderful neighbors, and close proximity to anything you could ever want, there really is no better place to call home. Sitting on the front porch I can hear birds chirping, see my neighbors walk their gorgeous Husky, and smell the wonderful homemade food from our local Colonial Village Inn. Wildlife is still abundant, and the surrounding landscaping is stunning. Kentucky has always been the most beautiful state, and Erlanger shows everything that makes Kentucky such a fantastic place to put down roots.
Erlanger is a relatively small city found outside the larger city of Florence, KY and just south of Cincinnati. It is the 'Friendship City' and is a very family friendly locality offering restaurants, shopping, and the Silver Lake Recreation Center which provides a family fun swimming experience in the warmer weather in addition to many other activities throughout the entire year.
