Finding Self Storage in Seattle, WA: Everything You Need To Know
If you like rain, coffee, and indie/rock/grunge music, you need to move to Seattle, Washington. This Pacific Northwest city that is just 100 miles south of the Canadian border is not only the birthplace to the first-ever Starbucks, it’s also one of only four states in which marijuana for recreational use is legal. What other reasons do you need for moving here?
Though Seattle is renowned for its seemingly-continuous rainfall, it actually only gets 36 inches of rain each year (one inch less than the national average). Still, the oceanic climate, which means wet winters and “relatively dry” (i.e. rainy) summers, makes for a lush, green landscape. You can hit the slopes at Mt. Rainier or Mt. St. Helens, hike the Cascades, swim or kayak in the Puget Sound or the Strait of Juan de Fuca, cycle the bike-friendly streets, rock climb, walk, skateboard, etc. Needless to say, Seattle has been ranked “the fittest city in America.”
And where do you put all that year-round sports equipment if you don’t want to clutter up your downtown bachelor pad? In a self-storage unit of course.
With its numerous live music venues like The Showbox, Columbia City Theater, and The Crocodile, local non-chain coffee shops like Analog Coffee and Zeitgeist Coffee, and annual 3-day Hempfest (“a humble gathering of stoners”), Seattle is an ideal town for hipsters. Your mountain man beard and preference for flannel lumberjack shirts will finally come in handy.
If you really want to see the city, take a trip up to the observation deck at the top of the Space Needle, a Seattle icon since the 1962 World’s Fair. For those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, you’ll want to check out the Seattle Art Museum. And there are plenty of cultural events in this diverse city, too, such as the Native American pow-wow or Greek Festival. If you have a career in technology, you’ll be happy to know that technology center Seattle is home to Microsoft, Amazon, and numerous software and Internet companies.
And guess where they store their technological equipment and gadgetry? In climate-controlled self storage facilities, of course (or if they don’t, they should!).
