Finding Self Storage in Tacoma, WA: Top Tips
Unlike New York or Los Angeles, not many people are familiar with a little (population of 198,397) Pacific Northwest town called Tacoma, Washington. It may not have big apples or angels, but Tacoma boasts being the hometown of legendary singer Bing Crosby. Back in the late 1800s, Tacoma beat out Seattle to become the western terminus for the Northern Pacific Railroad and thus earned the nickname City of Destiny.
Just 32 miles southwest of Seattle, Tacoma enjoys the same Mediterranean Oceanic climate—which is just a fancy way of saying cold and wet all year round. Despite that, Tacoma has been ranked “One of the Most Livable Areas,” “One of the Most Walkable Cities,” and the “Most Sexually Healthy City” in the U.S. It was also named the “Most Stressed Out City” in the country, which makes sense after all that walking and sexually-healthy activity.
If you’re tired, be sure to hop on the Tacoma Link, the state’s first (and free!) electric light rail streetcar. It will take you to one of many local self storage facilities in the city where you can stash all your own “Best Of” awards, plaques, ribbons, and banners.
Speaking of transportation, be sure to check out America’s Car Museum, a 165,000-square-foot collection of over 300 vintage and modern cars. Or if you prefer bipedal to gas pedal conveyance, you won’t want to miss a hike in Point Defiance Park, the 2nd biggest city park in the nation, or, if you really want a challenge, you can climb snowy Mt. Rainier, a tough but beautiful alpine trek. If you’d rather stay on horizontal turf, there’s always cycling, kayaking, and camping at Owen Beach or Titlow Beach.
There’s nothing better than an ice-cold beer or full-bodied glass of vino after a long day of outdoor activity, and you’ll find endless options in the newly revamped downtown, including the Tacoma Craft Beer Fest, Sweetheart Wine Walk, and Mt. Rainier Wine Festival. And with a drink or two under your belt, you’ll be relaxed enough to enjoy Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, which claims to “take the fear out of Shakespeare.”
The best place to safely store all your outdoor gear is not in your 400-foot bachelor pad with the Murphy bed/table/bathroom—it’s a self storage unit, of which there are plenty in Tacoma!
