Connecticut - Considering Connecticut is one of the U.S.’s smaller states, it has a surprisingly high number of colleges, including the Ivy League Yale University, located in New Haven. As one of the thirteen original U.S. colonies, it comes as no surprise that the Connecticut Antiques Trail has an abundance of Colonial artifacts that will have collectors renting twice as many self storage units to house all their finds. Anglers along the coast can keep their boats and saltwater fishing equipment at the self storage facility in the New Haven suburb of Orange, or travel further down the coastline to fish out of the coastal community near Stamford. In the center of the state, near Hartford, Middletown, Wethersfield and Rocky Hill, automobile enthusiasts use self storage units for housing hobby cars to tinker with between NASCAR races at the Stafford Motor Speedway. The many self storage facilities in the state of Connecticut are also great for storing canoes and rafts residents use on the state’s whitewater rapids.
