A change of environment does wonders.

Have you heard of café hopping? Well, it involves people visiting multiple cafés in a single day and trying the best coffees in town. Sounds fun right?

Well, students like myself are always hunting for amazing study spots. Just like café hopping, we search and try different spots until we find the right one. It’s pretty much our “study space” for the day.

And since it’s summer, I’m sure you’re trying to soak up all the vitamin D you can, which means you’re in luck. Here are six cool study spots you should visit this summer. That way, you can abandon your room and enjoy the weather!

Although you have classes during the summer, you can always change your environment when studying. And that includes visiting these amazing study spots.
