Get the door, it's the liquor store
Alright, Urbandale — you’re not urban, and you’re not in a dale (which supposedly means “valley”). What gives? Urbandale actually... goes far beyond what a literal interpretation of its name would promise. Situated 10 miles west of downtown Des Moines, the city of fewer than 46,000 extends from the tight suburban feel of its eastern edge to the near-wilderness of its open western border. There’s a lot of open space to enjoy in Urbandale, but perhaps that’s a luckier thing than it might appear. A century ago, Urbandale had just been incorporated and had around 300 people living in it. By 1950, that number had only climbed to 1,777. However, by the year 2000, the town had over 29,000 people and seemed destined to turn into a city in its own right. It didn’t, at least not in a bad way. Urbandale continues to maintain a small-town feel even as its population climbs. Along with its expansive views and multiple parks and recreation centers, Urbandale also enjoys the gift of on-demand alcohol delivery. That part is thanks to Drizly. You can visit our app or website and find a veritable smorgasbord of beers, wines, and liquors, all sourced from your local liquor stores. They’ll be at your door in 60 minutes or less.
