I like this small semi-rural town. It is quiet and relatively peaceful. Unlike bigger cities, people are more laid-back and willing to help each other. However, it does lack a lot of the conveniences of bigger cities. We have a smallish library, no movie theater, no mall, 3 main grocery stores, one main home improvement store, and little to nothing in the way of entertainment.
The town maintains a small town country atmosphere. Youth sporting events are a town highlight. The Livingston Lions football games are a great opportunity to view the supportive nature of the citizens of the town. Baseball games bring the town out in large numbers to cheer on the youth. Beyond sports there is always a good time to be had on Lake Livingston, fishing, boating, swimming, or skiing. Small town shops are in abundance boasting many antiques and treasures. The town could benefit from more chain grocery stores and restaurants.
Livingston has its ups and downs. Its main advantage is that it's a small, quiet rural town where you can have peace of mind and people still say hi to each other on the streets. Most people are willing to have a friendly chat. However, it doesn't have much variety or conveniences when it comes to entertainment, shopping, etc. It also has basically no public transportation.
