Retire in Trinity, Florida?
Overview: Trinity is a comfortable, fast-growing census-designated place (master planned development, really) named after the local Christian college, Trinity College of Florida. It is in a rural part of Florida, about 25 miles northwest of Tampa and 15 miles from the Gulf of Mexico.
Trinity is almost entirely comprised of named neighborhoods and gated communities. Heritage Springs is a large 55+ community with golf, tennis and more. Open space stands where new subdivisions are planned. Streets meander around small lakes, and there are a lot of cul de sacs. Homes are mostly new and not as cookie-cutter as might be expected, ranging from Mediterranean styles to modern four squares with clean lines. Trinity has no downtown, but residents have three groceries, a Walmart, a Target and more at which to shop. Westfield Citrus Park, a mall with national retailers, is 20 minutes away. Better chain restaurants are the norm. There is one golf course, with another four within a five mile drive. Fire and police services are provided by the county.
Thick and overgrown, Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park is just five miles to the north and has bicycle trails, equestrian paths, fishing lakes, primitive camping sites and wild animals.
