Finding Self Storage in Columbus, OH: Top Tips
Columbus, Ohio is not only the state capital, the 15th biggest city in the U.S., and has a population of 835,957, but it’s rated by the Intelligent Communities Forum as one of the top seven smartest cities in the world. In addition, this city has ranked well on several “best of” lists like BusinessWeek’s “Best Cities in America” and Forbes’ “Top Cities for Business.” Despite it’s nickname, Columbus is not just a Cowtown, my friend.
If you like drastic variations of weather (i.e. seasons), you’ll be happy to know that Columbus has a humid continental climate—which means that you’ll experience hot summers, cold winters, and everything from thunderstorms to tornadoes to blizzards to floods in between. Not to worry, though, as there are plenty of indoor activities to do when the weather turns foul. Check out Book Loft—with 32 rooms, it’s one of the biggest bookstores in the U.S. It’s located in the historic German Village, which the White House officially appointed as a Preserve America Community.
With so many possibilities in the climate, you’re going to need plenty of equipment like umbrellas, parkas, rubber boots, inflatable rafts, and lightening rods. Where do you store all this “drastic variations of weather” gear? In one of many self storage facilities around town, of course!
Columbus boasts an annual Doo Dah Parade to “celebrate liberty and lunacy,” and describes itself as “a small, disorganized march down the sidewalks of High Street.” You won’t want to miss the Marching Fidels, a group of people who dress up as Fidel Castro and “take siestas along the parade route and conscript bystanders into the Cuban army, dressing them in camouflage and ‘forcing’ them to march in the parade.”
If parades (or conscription) are not your thing, there’s always the Columbus Museum of Art which houses a European and American art collection up to early modernism, the botanical garden Franklin Park Conservatory, COSI (Center of Science and Industry), and Green Lawn Cemetery, one of the biggest graveyards in the Midwest. Who knows, maybe you’ll find your old arch nemesis safely tucked away here.
Storage units in Columbus, Ohio are the perfect solution for keeping your group’s Fidel Castro and Cuban army fatigues safe and moth-free.
