Get the door, it's the liquor store
Just north of Richmond lies Mechanicsville, a place whose motto may as well be “We Put Other Suburbs to Shame.”... They accomplish this partly by flying under the radar. Terms like “unincorporated area” and “census-designated place” aren’t terribly sexy, particularly with the shining star of Richmond just minutes to the south. Perhaps this keeps the population of Mechanicsville at a cozy 36,000. Most of the city is trees and rural beauty, with parks all around and some lovely shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation spots to keep the community glued together. You’ve also got a surprising number of businesses and economy for a place that’s so rural — though stepping into a green haven like Pole Green Park or the city’s many historical sites always takes you back to nature. Drizly treats Mechanicsville like even the biggest of cities, though. If you can dream up a beer, wine, or liquor, chances are you’ll find it or something even better on our app or website. Order it, and we’ll have it at your door in 60 minutes or less.
