Finding Self Storage in Philadelphia, PA: Everything You Need To Know
Although you may have known that Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania, I’ll bet you didn’t know that the state is officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, did you? With a population of 1.5 million, Philly is the 5th biggest city in the U.S., and with the popularity of the Philly Cheesesteak, it’s also the 14th biggest—weight-wise, that is. Don’t fret, though, because it’s also the 6th best city for singles (as in unmarried people, not one dollar bills).
If you’re looking to drown your sorrows, no better place than the “Best Beer-Drinking City in America,” especially during Philly Beer Week, which surely was coined by a drunkard since this event is actually 10 days. While you’re enjoying a pint or seven from a local microbrewery, you might even form a pop band, as did Daryl Hall and John Oates (i.e. Hall & Oates), who hail from the City of Brotherly Love. Kevin Bacon, Richard Gere, Tina Fey, and the Barrymore clan are all from here, too.
If your parents won’t let you store your rock ‘n’ roll instruments and gear in the basement because your dad insists on building a home gymnasium to burn off those love handles, you can always rent some storage units at a nearby self storage facility.
Philadelphians are nothing if not varied, so there is plenty to do in this city if sloppy sandwiches, yeast-fermented beverages, and ‘80s pop tunes are not your thing. Visit the world-renowned Philadelphia Museum of Art (you may recognize the front steps from the movie Rocky), Edgar Allan Poe’s home, or the Franklin Institute. Speaking of Benjamin Franklin, be sure to stop by Independence Hall, where the Founding Fathers of the United States signed the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the law that prevents anyone from becoming Governor if they’ve participated in a duel (okay, that wasn’t signed by Benny, but it is a law in this city).
And where do you think Franklin, Washington, Jefferson, et al stored all their feather quills, pots of ink, and scrolls of parchment? That’s right—in secure, climate-controlled self storage units around town.
