As SecurCare Self Storage continues to expand across the country, we are proud to welcome to the family a storage location in both Lodi, California, and Wilson, North Carolina!
Aside from recently hosting an episode of “American Pickers,” the documentary series that explores the art of finding valuable, high-quality antiques and collectibles, Lodi, California, also has another burgeoning claim to fame as a go-to wine hotspot.
While other California locations like Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley are more well-known to the general public for their vineyards, Lodi is quickly coming into its own as a premiere destination for small lot, handcrafted wines.
Located 90 miles east of San Francisco and 35 miles south of Sacramento, Lodi boasts 85 boutique wineries that collectively cover more than 100,000 acres and produce around 450 labels in more than 100 varieties of wine. These fourth and fifth-generation winegrowers love their craft. As their hearts pump reds, they sweat whites and they have grapevines instead of veins.
The Lodi wine trails provide a more intimate and inviting experience compared to the more famous and beaten track in the other California winery locations. Lodi has a wide range of vintages for wine aficionados of all stripes but is unofficially known as the “Zinfadel Capital of the World,” with the vineyards here generating 40 percent of this premium wine in California.
In addition to its burgeoning reputation as ground zero for wine lovers, Lodi also boasts colorful 19th-century buildings and Mission Revival structures that maintain the city’s historical aesthetic.
While storage units in Lodi provide a great solution for families who want to downsize their homes or for small-business owners looking to optimize their office space, a self storage unit also makes an ideal spot for wine lovers to keep their wines.
In addition to the up-and-coming wineries in Lodi, the city sits smack dab in between the rolling green hills and quaint main streets that spot Northern California.
On the other side of the country, Wilson, North Carolina, has been doing its part to keep things quirky and fun. While it might not be a growing wine community, Wilson has been busy fostering a creative and hard-working environment.
“Wilson, NC, has been busy fostering a creative and hard-working environment.”
Located about 40 miles east of Raleigh, North Carolina, Wilson has a diverse economy based on manufacturing, agriculture, commercial and service businesses. The county is home to more than 130 manufacturers in all sorts of industries, from pharmaceuticals to aerospace.
After a hard day’s or week’s work, Wilsonians have plenty of fun activities at their disposal that allow them to either kick back and relax or gear up and explore. Sports play a big role in the city, as its Burt Gillette Athletic Complex has hosted the NC Little League State Tournament, the U.S. Youth Soccer Regional Championship games and the annual Boys and Girls “The Brittany Soccer Showcase.”
In addition to being a big sports town, Wilson also offers
Each of these attractions offers its own special take on the history, culture and Southern charms of this fascinating region. With an award-winning revitalized downtown, historic walking tours and a year-round slew of festivals and outdoor concerts, there’s always plenty to do in Wilson.
In addition to a wide array of cultural amenities, Wilson is perhaps most well-known for Whirligig Park and Museum. The brainchild of internationally recognized folk artist Vollis Simpson, Whirligig Park is a two-acre park featuring 16 of Simpson’s vibrant and dynamic sculptures that dazzle the senses and inspire the imagination. This one-of-a-kind park, located in the heart of Historic Downtown Wilson, offers artistic, educational and recreational opportunities for all.
