The average person can retire to Hawaii. How? The answers are found within the pages of Living and Retiring in Hawaii.
James R. Smith, Ph.D., and spouse Diane Smith, B.S., detail the options available to émigrés, including:
- Whether to rent, buy or build and what to look for in a new home.
- Retirement communities, catered living, and assisted living.
- Choosing an island-Oahu, Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, Molokai or Lanai.
- Recreation and leisure pursuits.
Living and Retiring in Hawaii focuses on the health considerations and lifestyle adjustments that predominantly concern retirees. The Smiths demonstrate how to secure a dream retirement in Hawaii by successfully forecasting cost of living expenses and planning for maximum enjoyment.
