Finding Self Storage in Albuquerque, NM: Everything You Need To Know
With a population of 557,169, Albuquerque, New Mexico is the largest city in the state. ABQ, as the locals call it, is where you’ll find Kirtland Air Force Base, the White Sands Missile Range (where the first nuke was tested back in ’42), Sandia National Laboratories, and, most importantly, the International Balloon Fiesta. Situated on the northern end of the Chihuahuan Desert, Albuquerque has a cold desert climate, with long, dry, sunny summers and “brief” winters.
If you want to fit in here, you’ll have to learn to eat green chili on everything—tacos, hamburgers, ice cream, coffee. Everything. Once you get used to it, go straight to Burrito Lady for the best Chicharrón burrito outside of Mexico, and then while you’re waiting for the fire in your mouth to subside, head over to Sister Bar to listen to some hot local bands and cold local brewskies. As you walk around town, keep your eyes open for displays of art, such as bronze statues, graffiti, and murals, all thanks to the Public Art Program.
As an artist, you may not want to store all those large and numerous art materials at home, but rest assured that the numerous self storage units available in Albuquerque make an ideal solution.
Speaking of art, be sure to check out the KiMo Theatre which not only shows movies but the 1927 Art Deco building is a work of art itself. To get more of a taste of Albuquerque, visit Old Town, a historic district that dates back to 1706 and is made up of a central plaza surrounded by ten blocks of adobe buildings where you can shop, browse art galleries, or take a guided ghost tour. You can learn even more about the vicinity at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History which has 8 journey-through-time exhibits that span the birth of the universe to the Jurassic Era to the Ice Age.
You can go hiking—or skiing, in the winter!—in the Sandia Mountains, and be sure to take the Sandia Peak Tramway, the 2nd longest passenger aerial tramway in the world, with an elevation of 10,300 feet above sea level. Albuquerque is a popular location for movies (Little Miss Sunshine, The Avengers) and TV shows (Breaking Bad, Extreme Makeover Home Edition). Also, Bugs Bunny often muses that he should have “made a left turn at Albuquerque” in the popular Looney Tunes cartoon.
If you’re wondering what to do with all your dinosaur bones, hiking or skiing gear, and adobe bricks, think about stashing them in a safe self storage facility.
