Livingston is a small town of about 6,000 people in east Texas. It is 37 miles east of Huntsville and 70 north of Houston. It is located very near Lake Livingston and Sam Houston National Forest. Onalaska and Coldspring are two nearby towns that get positive reviews.
Livingston is popular with retirees because of its low cost and proximity to the lake. There is a one of a kind assisted living facility in Livingston that caters to retired RVers, which is called CARE - Continued Assistance for Retired Escapees(photo above courtesy of their website). Real estate values are quite low, averaging well below $100,000.
