Welcome to Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond – a lifestyle magazine geared to the 55+ market in greater Cleveland.

Boomer and Beyond is a natural next step coming on the heels of the successful publication of Aging Answers, a supplement within Northeast Ohio Parent magazine, designed to reach the “sandwich generation” – parents taking care of their growing children as well as being caregivers to their own parents.

Boomer and Beyond fills the need in the marketplace for objective, local and positive content focused 100% on the needs and wants of those 55 and older in northeast Ohio. Editorial coverage areas include health, wellness, legal, financial, insurance, entertainment, recreation, education, technology, travel, events and much more. An editorial advisory board has been established to help shape the content toward what is most relevant for this audience.

The tagline for Boomer and Beyond is “Your Journey – Your Life,” reflecting the unique path we all take and empowering us to make the most of life based on individual choice.  Northeast Ohio is a great place to live at any age, with its superior health care services, world class cultural amenities, affordable housing and diversity of weather! The magazine celebrates this region as a positive place to age and thrive in the second half of life.

Boomer and Beyond magazine launched in Fall 2015 and is published six times in 2016, beginning with the Winter issue, followed by March/April, May/June, July/August, September/October and November/December.
