Everything You Need to Know About Finding Self Storage in West Palm Beach, FL
With a population of 104,031, West Palm Beach, Florida has come a long way since it was incorporated in 1894 with just 200 residents, one hotel, a church, and a post office. It lies 68 miles north of Miami and has a tropical rainforest climate, which means hot, humid, and rainy in the summer and fairly hot, kind of humid, and thunderstorms every other day during the winter.
Orchid City boasts plenty of historic districts that you won’t want to miss. Be sure to check out Central Park (which is no longer a park but an exclusive neighborhood), El Cid (not the medieval Spanish military leader, but a Mediterranean-style area), and Northwest (the first district inducted into the National Register of Historic Places that includes the first black woman legislator in Florida’s house).
If you’re in the process of moving or revitalizing your home, take advantage of the many self-storage facilities conveniently located all across town. This is also a great opportunity to conveniently “misplace” that wagon wheel coffee table or plastic flamingo collection your spouse refuses to get rid of.
There is plenty of things to do in West Palm Beach, like enjoy outdoor music and art at the annual SunFest, which has headlined such acts as Cyndi Lauper, Bob Dylan, and Carrie Underwood. If you’re more of a night owl, you’ll be happy to know there is a Moonfest—a free Halloween street festival that features several musical performances, carnival rides, and costume contest on the famous Clematis Street in downtown.
If you’re seeking out The Carefree Theatre to enjoy some indie films, you might be surprised—the building was damaged by Hurricane Wilma so the theater is now in a church up the street and simply called The Theater. If you’re really interested in history, don’t miss a trip to Peanut Island where the Kennedy Bunker, an underground bomb shelter for President John F. Kennedy, is open to the public after years of secrecy. You can scuba dive to the island if you want, but it might be easier to take a water taxi.
And if you manage to return from the island with some bomb shelter souvenirs, you’d best store them in a secure self-storage unit.
