Nearly 79 million Americans were born between 1946 and 1964, creating what is widely known as the baby boomer generation. This group grew up with The Beatles, civil rights movement and Vietnam War.
As the baby boomers approach retirement, they may find themselves seeking specific products and services that cater to their needs. At the other end of the spectrum, it is estimated that more than 4 million babies are born each year in the U.S. These blessings have their own sets of needs and wants.
The Southwest Orlando Bulletin presents a compilation of Southwest businesses and professionals that cater to the needs of these two very distinct segments of the population.
