Newcomers to Atlanta

4 May 2012 by

Atlanta is one of the largest cities in the United States and for newcomers to the city that means plenty of confusion and lots of things to figure out. There are many museums, parks and sports attractions to keep you busy for years. The diverse city and nightlife have over 35 million people flocking to the city each year. With space at a minimum, self storage is a growing need for many Atlanta residents. Below are some tips for locating 30318 storage as well as things to do in Atlanta.

Moving

Moving to Atlanta in the summer time might prove to be more than you can handle. They don’t call the city “Hotlanta” for nothing you know. Temperatures in the summer easily climb over 100 degrees on a daily basis and the humidity makes it feel warmer. The warm, humid weather is about the only drawback to the city as there is plenty to do and see. Atlanta is a major business city and is the primary transportation hub of the Southeast and is thus a bit pricey in terms of living. City living might be farfetched if you are a young professional simply trying to get by. If you have too much stuff for an apartment or small house, there are several hundred self storage facilities in the city which will be able to keep your belongings safe and secure.

College

Atlanta has more than 30 colleges in the city and several more just outside the city limits. Some of the more prominent schools include Emory University – a liberal arts and research institution which is considered one of the top universities in the world, Georgia Institute of Technology – a premier research university consistently ranked as one of the top ten public universities and Georgia State University.

Many students come to Atlanta to enjoy the lifestyle while still earning a good degree. Whether students are coming in from across the city or across the globe, there is a good possibility they will need college storage. Students will find Atlanta self storage located throughout the city and instead of calling each facility they can use our convenient storage finder. Simply type in 30329 storage or use the options on the right to narrow down your search.

Culture

You don’t have to worry if you are new to the Atlanta area as almost 13% of the city was born outside of the U.S. This makes Atlanta a great place to live, work and play and brings out the extremely diverse culture. For all of you music lovers, the city is the capital of hip hop and a center for gospel music. Go see a band at the Fox Theater or see the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra play nearly every night. The High Museum of Art is the South’s most popular art museum and the Georgia Aquarium is the world’s largest indoor aquarium.

There really is something for nearly everyone as Atlanta is the 7th most visited city in the United States. For sports enthusiasts, Atlanta has 3 major professional sports teams in the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta Hawks. Georgia Tech also plays their ACC home schedule in the city.

Cityscape

Almost all of Atlanta’s buildings built before 1964 were burned to the ground by Union troops. Due to this, there is much modernism in Atlanta architecture and much of it was influenced by Atlanta native, architect John Portman. The tallest building in Atlanta, and 9th tallest in the U.S., is Bank of America Plaza.

Unique to Atlanta and almost any other city is the abundance of trees in the city giving way to the nickname “City in a Forest”.  The city also has 343 parks, nature preserves and gardens which includes the historic Piedmont Park. You can visit Grant Park and go to the zoo while walking around or go to Midtown Park and see the major renovation which took place in 2010.

This brief Atlanta overview should help you find things to do in the city and allow you to locate an Atlanta self storage facility should you need one.
