Get the door, it's the liquor store
Temple's rural-meets-urban vibe is a welcome breath of fresh air in a state loaded with big cities like Austin, Dallas,... Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. It’s also a lovely stop to break up the 3.5-hour drive between Dallas and Austin, giving you a chance to put some delicious food in your belly and some sweet Texas tea in your gas tank (or some clean, green EV charging volts, if you’re with the times). If you’re not especially eager to return to the interstate after your stop, Temple is one of the nicest places to settle down in Texas spontaneously. It’s got a great economy, thanks partly to three hospitals: The Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center, and Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Medical Center. It’s got small-town charm and city convenience in one fell swoop. You’ve got great sports, golf, food, shopping, and other recreation, all within a short drive. All under that nourishing Texas sun. Temple is pretty much all you need as a Texan. In fact, it’s more than you ever knew you needed, for Temple residents get their favorite booze delivered to their door. Drizly’s app and website make it easy — simply order your favorite beers, wines, and liquors, and we’ll get them to you in 60 minutes or less.
