Wilder is a smaller town just 15 minutes away from downtown Cincinnati, OH. Near Newport and Covington, we are surrounded with fun cities and things to do! Wilder itself is quiet, friendly, and full of wonderful people. Think southern, small town and that's what you'll find in Wilder, KY. I love living here and highly recommend the area to anyone looking for a home in Northern Kentucky. 20 minutes away from University of Cincinnati and 20 minutes away from Northern Kentucky University, a great location for new families!

My area doesn't see much crime. Newport is more concerning
The area is always having something going on. There is never a lazy day in Northern Kentucky.
