The Quest for Retirement Utopia:
How to Find the Retirement Spot That’s Right for You

by Dave Hughes

It’s fun to dream about where you’ll retire. Without a job tying you down, why not relocate to a place more to your liking?

Perhaps you want to live someplace warmer, closer to the water, or where the pace of life is slower. Maybe you want to stretch your retirement dollars by living where the cost of living or taxes are lower. You might even be thinking of retiring in another country or spending your retirement in an RV or on a cruise ship.

With so much to consider, choosing the place that’s right for you can become overwhelming.

The Quest for Retirement Utopia covers all the possibilities and helps you cut through all of the daunting and often conflicting information.

This book will help you clarify what factors are most important to you and suggest some considerations that you may not have thought of. It will suggest new possibilities for where and how you might retire. It will help you evaluate each place realistically and dissuade you from making a poor choice. And it will provide you with the resources you need to properly evaluate the places you are thinking about retiring so that you can make the most informed choice.

The Quest for Retirement Utopia is not just a quest for the most beautiful or most economically advantageous place, it’s a quest for the place where you can live an optimal, fulfilling, and wonderful life.

The Quest for Retirement Utopia will help you find the retirement spot that’s right for you! (continued below…)

With a nearly limitless range of possibilities for where you can live and dozens of factors you might consider when searching for the best place to move, how can you make sense of it all?

With so much to consider, choosing the place that’s right for you can become overwhelming.

The Quest for Retirement Utopia: How to Find the Retirement Spot That’s Right for You covers all the possibilities and helps you cut through all of the daunting and often conflicting information.

The Quest for Retirement Utopia will help you at least four ways:

  1. It will help you clarify what is most important to you, and suggest some considerations that you may not have thought of.
  2. It will suggest new possibilities for where – and how – you might retire. In other words, it will help you think outside the box.
  3. It will dissuade you from making a poor choice for where to retire. It’s easy to think about places to live in idealized terms, and many websites and brochures accentuate only the positive. Choosing where to live is as much about avoiding the negative factors as it is about maximizing the positive ones. Often warts are hidden and you don’t discover them until after you have moved.
  4. It will provide you with the resources you need to properly evaluate the places you are thinking about retiring, so that you can make the most informed choice – the choice that is right for you.

This book will prepare you with the facts and resources you need, the questions you should ask and get answered, and the factors you should consider as you embark upon your quest for your Retirement Utopia – the retirement destination that’s right for you.

The book is packed with useful resources, and you will receive a link to an extensive Resources webpage that will continue to be updated in the future. This wealth of resources is worth the cost of the book alone!

The Quest for Retirement Utopia is one of the most thorough and thought-provoking books you will find on this topic.

The book presents dozens of factors you should consider as you evaluate places to live. More important, it helps you identify which of those factors are most relevant to you according to your plans for what you want to do with the rest of your life.

There’s a section that helps you make sense of the tax structures of each state and helps you put taxation in the proper perspective relative to all the other considerations.

There’s a brief summary of the pluses and minuses of each state, as well as some suggestions for prime spots in many states.

There’s a discussion of the pros and cons of 55+ active adult communities, and a look at how changing retirement trends are impacting these communities now and in the future.

The book tackles other discussion topics such as staying in place, downsizing, and renting vs. buying.

The book also considers other alternatives for how you might live in retirement, such as full-time RV living, living on a houseboat or a cruise ship, and living as a full-time world traveler.

The book contains several first-hand accounts from people who have actually moved in retirement. Their stories contribute a relatable, personal touch and bring the book to life with color and human interest to complement all the facts and data.

You’ll read the stories of two couples who moved from cities to beautiful but remote rural locations. And you’ll meet a retired veteran, who is now exploring the United States and Canada in an RV as a solo female traveler, photographing and writing about her discoveries along the way.

There’s an extensive section (about one-third of the book) devoted to retiring outside the United States. It covers a wide range of topics including visas, taxation, real estate, healthcare, culture shock, and finding expat communities.

You’ll read the stories of two couples who have moved to Mexico. They discuss why they moved, the challenges they faced, and the adjustments they have had to make along the way. The numerous bits of wisdom they share will be applicable and useful no matter where you move outside the US.

Despite the challenges and adjustments, both couples are happy that they made the move. Almost all of the other expats whose stories I have read are also enjoying their life overseas.

Even if you’re not considering retiring outside the US, this section will increase your knowledge and appreciation of other countries and cultures throughout the Americas and Europe. It may inspire you to add some places to your travel list!

For my LGBT readers, there’s a section of the book devoted to the additional layer of considerations you should take into account as you search for your ideal place. In fact, if you are part of any minority demographic, you’ll want to consider places that will be most accepting of diversity.

I choose to view retirement as an adventure, and I hope you will too. Moving, if done purposefully, can be an immensely rewarding part of this adventure. Moving can place you in the best position, literally, to enjoy your retirement to its fullest.

The Quest for Retirement Utopia is not just a quest for the most beautiful or most economically advantageous place to live.

The Quest for Retirement Utopia is the quest for the place where you can live an optimal, fulfilling, and wonderful life!
