Get the door, it's the liquor store
Chicago’s got some of the nicest suburbs of any city in the country, and Lombard is no exception. This burb... lies about 20 miles west of downtown, putting you out of the madness but not too far from the action — exactly what a well-placed suburb should do! In 1848, the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad gave Lombard locals access to Chicago. This pivotal event reshaped the town — commercial buildings mushroomed up around the station, and just two decades later, the town was incorporated. Its name comes from the Chicago real estate developer and banker Josia Lewis Lombard. Today, it’s got about 43,000 to 45,000 people living within its borders, enough to keep things interesting without getting too hectic. Lombard also enjoys some special perks. Among these is the ability to have alcohol delivered straight to its residents’ doors in 60 minutes or less. Pull up the Drizly app or website and make your selections of beers, wines and liquors. They’ll arrive quickly.
