Where do you really, really want to live, work and play?  Why not live where it’s a vacation all year round?”

Start over.

Where can you go to make a fresh, new start?

Don’t limit your imagination.

Think anywhere — across the globe.

Where do you really, really want to live, work and play?

Why not live where it’s a vacation all year round?

Why Not Live Where Others Visit for Vacations?

At the beach, of course.

Like 30 – (or 40–) something, Charlie Harper.

On “Two and a Half Men” – when it was funny.

He chose Malibu Beach in California.

As television shows go, it was an upgrade to Pawnee and Eagleton.

Right on the beach next to Pacific Coast Highway with a killer view of the Pacific Ocean.

A magnet for attracting all those younger, single women to his bachelor lair.

Oh, and an attraction for his alimony-paying, suddenly single brother – Alan the divorced-father of Jake.

Where the Land Ends and the Fun Begins

Or, how about something less expensive, say Cabo San Lucas?

In a tropical paradise less than 1000 miles from the U.S. Mexican border, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, great food and drink –

“where the land ends and the fun begins” – 

where you can golf, fish, snorkel, swim or dive, kayak, surf or sail.

It was there where I interviewed David and John, who wanted to be called Johnny, in the Pueblo Bonita’s lobby for “The Journal of 2020 Foresight.”

Johnny’s story sounded similar — the golf and fishing drew him originally from Boston.

Boston

You see a lot of midlife transitions — a divorce, kids living with their mothers, or a split from an empty nest.

But, after a while of living in the Cabo fast lane, they settle down a little and find a line of business to fill some of the hours in the day.

David said he came down from Toronto a few years ago and stayed.

He bought a place next door to the resort, which will overlook a planned golf course.

He told me that he and a partner had figured out and patented a bridge repair process that took off and allowed him to partially retire.

He purchased 4 or 5 timeshares, including one of the two sister resorts.

David took me on the tour and showed me how they built the place so no room will be blocked from the gorgeous Pacific Ocean and beach view.

Although the surf is rough and no one can swim at their beach.

But the meandering blue tiled pool with swim-up bar more than compensates for that sacrifice.

The rooms with luxurious tile, top of the line furnishings and expansive patios speak to their affluent market.

So Johnny from Boston and David from Canada — two refugees from the cold weather– what my retired parents in Florida used to call “snowbirds” — migrated to Cabo.

They’re now what we’re calling Wireless Resorters.

At midlife they flock to resort boomtowns in exurban towns and satellite cities.

They’re often middle-class, with some college education under their belts.

They pursue a lifestyle heavy on leisure and recreation.

Many of resort boomtown residents are twenty-something singles and couples just starting out on their career paths – or starting over after recent divorces or company transfers.

As consumers, the residents in these segments score high for outdoor sports, movies and music, fast food and inexpensive cars.
