The Quest for Retirement Utopia is the third in a trilogy of retirement lifestyle guides from Dave Hughes.

His previous books, Design Your Dream Retirement and Smooth Sailing into Retirement, tackle issues of appraising one's retirement vision before the big day, collaborating with a spouse or significant other to assess and align goals, and creating the best possible transition into retirement after years of being in the workforce and living in that mindset.

This book is designed for those who are closer to retirement or who have already crossed the threshold. It takes a fundamental question, "Now that you don't need to live near your employer, where do you really want to live?", and offers a comprehensive, thought-provoking roadmap to evaluating what will make your retirement enjoyable and fulfilling. You may decide that your present location is exactly what you want. You may already know you want to move. But where? And why?

The Quest for Retirement Utopia will help you sort it all out.

Rich with detailed, up-to-date information about retirement lifestyle options (houseboats, RVs and cruise ships, just to name a few) and a very in-depth look at international retirement, this well-organized book has something for practically everyone.

A must-have for anyone close to retirement or already there!

About the Author

Dave Hughes is a leading authority on retirement lifestyle planning. He writes about retirement lifestyle planning on his website, and in his published books.

In 2016-2017, Dave was a regular contributor to U.S. News’ On Retirement blog. In 2017, received the Best Senior Living Award from as one of the top retirement blogs, by both reader polling and judge’s selection. Dave was named one of’s Top 50 Influencers in Aging for 2017.

Following a successful 34-year career as a software engineer, trainer and course developer, and manager, Dave accepted an early retirement package and retired at age 56.

During the final phase of his working career Dave started searching the Internet for information about what life in retirement is really like. He discovered that at least 95% of all the retirement-related information was focused on the financial aspects of retirement – how much money you’ll need, how you should shift your investment mix as you get older, how fast you can draw down your savings, and so on. Relatively little was being written about how to live a happy, fulfilling life during retirement, and of that, practically nothing was being written from an LGBT perspective.

Dave created to fill that void. Dave has extensively researched retirement lifestyle issues, as well as drawing upon his own experiences of transitioning into retirement and those of others.
