The 5,978 residents of Port Clinton can enjoy small-town living close to city amenities. Located on Lake Erie, Port Clinton is less than an hour’s drive from Toledo, with Cleveland just over an hour away. Locals have access to several parks, world-class fishing and idyllic views of Lake Erie. 

Port Clinton’s cost of living is 2.1% less than the U.S. average, which may explain the city’s high demographic of seniors. Nationally, about 17% of the population is aged 65 or over, but that figure rises to nearly 25% in Port Clinton.

The city tends to receive less rain than the U.S. average, potentially making it attractive to anyone prone to weather-induced arthritis flare-ups. Residents can access award-winning care at Magruder Hospital, which received the HX Guardian of Excellence Award. 

According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, assisted living in Port Clinton costs an average of $4,219 per month, making the city about $400 more affordable than the state average and nearly $300 less expensive than the national average. Port Clinton also provides better value than Cleveland ($4,940 per month) and Cincinnati ($4,666 per month). However, compared to Ohio’s capital, Columbus, seniors in Port Clinton pay about $135 more for care.
