Tips for Finding Self Storage in San Jose, CA
It may be considered the kid brother to San Francisco, but San Jose is not only the 3rd largest California city when it comes to population (which is just over 1 million), it also used to be the state’s original capital. Take that, Frisco! Nicknamed the Capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose plays a huge part in the high tech industry and is home to Adobe, PayPal, and Lee’s Sandwiches.
San Ho, as the cool kids call it, enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate, which translates to 301 days of sunshine per year and an average temperature of 60.5 °F. The weather means that there is an abundance of outdoor activities, like the free San Pedro Square Market Movie Nights, the Children’s Discovery Museum’s permanent (and, at 30 square feet, largest) Monopoly game, and Downtown Ice, a skating rink surrounded by palm trees.
Where to stow your lawn chairs, winter sports gear, and life-sized plastic train depots? In a convenient, nearby self storage unit, of course.
After a long day of fun, be sure to visit Psycho Donuts in downtown San Jose, “Silicon Valley’s original gourmet donut asylum.” After a Boston Scream Pie, you’ll probably want to chill out at Kelley Park, a 156-acre city park that contains Happy Hollow Zoo, History Park, and the Japanese Friendship Garden.
As evening approaches, head on over to the SoFa (South First Area) district, the arts and entertainment hub which is also downtown. You can enjoy the culinary diversity at Orchestria Palm Court Café or Blue Chip, the symphony or opera at California Theatre, or the annual Cinequest Film Festival for indie flicks. And after an hour or two at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, you’re going to need a drink at 55 South.
If your eyes were bigger than your stomach and you purchased more psycho donuts than you can eat, store the surplus Nutella the Hun, Cereal Killer, and Headbanger donuts in a climate-controlled unit at a self-storage facility in town.
