Situated in Washington’s idyllic Olympic Peninsula, Gig Harbor is an authentic fishing village set among emerald-green forests that’s less than an hour’s drive from the state’s largest city, Seattle. Outdoor-loving retirees have access to abundant nature-based recreational activities such as fishing, hiking, swimming and boating. With the area’s four-season, classic Pacific Northwest climate, summers are warm and pleasant. The cool, rainy winters keep everything fresh and green, and the occasional light dusting of snow is just enough to provide a temporary winter wonderland ambiance but not enough to pose a major inconvenience.
Seniors aged 65 and over make up approximately 24.6% of Gig Harbor’s population of just under 11,000 people. The average cost of assisted living in the city is $5,000 per month, which is lower than the $5,750 average for the state of Washington but higher than the national average of $4,300.
Note: Information for Gig Harbor was not available, so data from the nearest city, Bremerton, was used.
