Tips for Finding Self Storage in Tucson, AZ
Whether it’s the lure of the scorpion-friendly desert, the infamous blood-red sunsets, or the authentic Mexican cuisine, Tucson, Arizona is a popular destination for cowboy wannabees. The Old Pueblo has a population of 520,116 (not including all the resident rattlesnakes), a desert climate with just one season—hot—and is a mere 60 miles north of Mexico. What more could someone who wants all their friends back home to think they’re a real cowpoke want?
Tucson is located in the Sonoran Desert and is surrounded by several mountain ranges, including the Santa Catalina Mountains (its highest peak is Mount Lemmon, named after Sara Lemmon, the first European woman to climb it) and the Tucson Mountains. If you’re looking for a place of spirituality, drive out to the San Xavier Mission, which was named after Society of Jesus co-founder—no, not Mr. Christ himself—Francis Xavier. If you’re looking for spirits, on the other hand, you’ll want to check into room 242 in the Historic Hotel Congress which is said to be haunted by a ghost who reportedly drinks your beer when you’re not looking.
If, like many other people, you’ve come to Tucson in an attempt to film an actual ghost sighting, you can store your cameras, audio recorders, EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) meters, and Air Ion Counters in a secure and convenient self-storage unit.
As you wait for the haunted hotel to live up to its reputation, you may want to attend La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros, an annual weekly rodeo-slash-parade (hopefully not at the same time). Other points of interest include the Tucson Meet Yourself festival (a celebration of traditional arts), the All Souls Procession (a Dia de Los Muertos carnival that ends with a ceremonial burning of wishes for the dead), and the Tucson Festival of Books (4th biggest in the country!).
Between the collection of books, arts and crafts, and souls, you’re going to need a place to keep all your cultural keepsakes, and a unit in a self-storage facility is the perfect solution.
