Sequim Washington has become a major retirement destination, and while it has been for decades, this is even more true today because retirees are able to do more effective research today on the Internet. And after a lot of Internet research, couples are taking trips to check out some of their researched destinations like Sequim Washington.
I met a wonderful couple moving to Sequim this week. I attended a two day seminar in Las Vegas on the subject of “giving seminars.” On the way home, I’m in the shuttle bus from SeaTac back to my parked car when I strike up a conversation with the couple in the adjacent seat. It turns out they bought land in Sequim and are building their retirement home. They won’t retire for three years, but living in Tacoma is a short trip to Sequim to work on their home. But what I really found intriguing, apart from the many interests we had in common, and what great conversationalists they were, was how they found Sequim Washington.
Sequim Washington as Destination
This couple spent the last three years researching hundreds of possible retirement destinations on the west coast, and then they drove to dozens of locations over these three years to check out what they had learned and see for themselves what each location promised. Considering that they are intelligent, experienced in life (they are in their late 50’s), and know what they want, their due diligence has a great deal of relevance to other retirees of the same generation with similar values and interests. Their number one choice was Sequim Washington.
