Get the door, it's the liquor store
San Joaquin holds many treasures, and Merced sits comfortably among them. This city is the county seat of Merced County... and is home to over 86,000 Californians. It’s a place that’s got it all (with the exception of the beach) since it’s right next to the mountains but within driving distance of all other California spots and cities. Most notably, it’s called the “Gateway to Yosemite” for a reason: You’re under two hours from the national park and many other wonders of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Quality of life in Merced is top-notch, and you’ve also got Highway 99 connecting you to other Central Valley spots like Chowchilla, Modesto, and Stockton. Feel like hitting up the big city? San Francisco is two hours away. Want to go skiing? Leave for the mountains, and you’ll be riding the first chair up. Everything’s a short drive here … at least in California terms. Amazingly, the shortest drive of all is to get alcohol. That’s right — with Drizly, we guarantee you a zero-minute drive to get your favorite beers, wines, and liquors. We partner with local liquor stores to deliver them straight to your door in 60 minutes or less. Just visit our app or website to make your selections.
