Get the door, it's the liquor store
Richardson, Texas, is like that kid in school who took home all the awards, and yet as much as you... wanted to loathe them, you just couldn’t because they were too darn sweet. Even if you can’t pin that particular analogy to one of your grade-school rivals, you get the point — Richardson wins, and it wins big time. We’ll try to do this in one breath. Richardson is home to the University of Texas at Dallas, one of the Lone Star State’s biggest universities that started as Texas Instruments’ own private research facility. The city is home to 118,000 people and 5,000 businesses. That’s one business per 24 people — and they include big hitters like United Healthcare, GEICO, State Farm Insurance and more. Even AT&T is headquartered here. In fact, so many telecom companies are headquartered here that Richardson is known as the Telecom Corridor. There are enough walking and biking trails to keep you seeing new sights for years. The neighborhood known as Breckinridge Park is consistently ranked among the nicest areas in Dallas-Fort Worth. Wow, that was a lot. There’s just one more thing to mention: People in Richardson can get beers, wines and liquors delivered straight to their door. You can too. Just open the Drizly app, enter your address, and order your favorite booze. It’ll be there in an hour or less.
