It is a beautiful time of year, where we, as students, love to get out of our apartments to enjoy the spring weather, and what better place to do it than right here in Philadelphia! Being located right by the heart of the city is an advantage that every Philadelphian should take advantage of. There is so much to offer with so many fun things to do for both your personal and professional lives. Here are some ideas to get you outside and enjoying the spring time!

· Cafes & Coffee Shops. With finals upon us, some of us may be feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Finding a café or coffee shop in the city where you can sit and do your work can be the perfect get away from the gloomy library. One of my personal favorites? Joe Coffee, which sits right in front of Rittenhouse Square and offers awesome beverages and scenery. It’s also a great spot for us PR students do to some blogging and networking.
· Philly Tech Week. Held from April 17th- 25th, Technical.ly Philly has organized over 100 events that will take place during the week that cover everything from business, media, creative, civic and access technology and digital marketing. It’s a great place to hear from media professionals through conventions and panels as they discuss the future of the industry. For those of you who plan to attend, don’t forget to dress your best and pack your business cards as it’s a great place to get your name out.
· Food & Arts Festivals. Do you like good food and even better music? Philly is known to host some of the best food and music festivals that attract people from all over. These include the Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival, South St. Headhouse Spring Festival & Manifest, Plazapalooza, Spruce Street Harbor Park and more. Each event offers its own unique menus and activities while also giving you another view of the city.
· Parks & Recreations. If you’re sick of your indoor workouts or just looking for a reason to be outside, check out Philly’s own Fairmount Park, Kelly Drive or River Boardwalk. All three are great places for a run, bike ride or for walking your dog. The beautiful landscapes are also hard to overlook.
