Trinity is nice place to live for a senior. There are communities on the lake. Westwood Shores is a gated community on Lake Livingston. I have retired parents that live there. It is definitely not a fast paced town. It is about 20 minutes to Huntsville where there are larger grocery stores, a small mall, Target, Wal-mart, and plenty of restaurants. The Woodlands is only about an hour drive where there is shopping and choices for health care.
