Get the door, it’s the liquor store
Alcohol delivery in under an hour to Australia? Not quite, but lucky locals in Melbourne, Florida, can enjoy Drizly’s ridiculously... easy services along the beachy Atlantic coastline. Sure there may not be wild kangaroos in the U.S. version of Melbourne, but the Brevard Zoo lets you walk alongside these jumpy marsupials. Besides, Floridians need only fear a handful of venomous snakes; Australia is home to more than 50 deadly species. What’s more, Melbourne, Florida, enjoys an average of 234 sunny days throughout the year compared to the Australian city, which boasts a measly 48. Save yourself the expensive ticket (not to mention the 20-hour plane ride) and appreciate downtown Melbourne’s artsy historic district and dining scene. Mix a few drinks at home before exploring the city’s elaborate murals. Make your own shrimp-on-the-barbie and grill fresh seafood on the patio with pals — with a beer in hand, of course. Drizly partners with hundreds of local Florida liquor stores to provide Melbourne natives with a huge variety of spirits.
