I think that it's safe to say that everyone is beyond ready for Summer. Although the stress of finals is soon approaching us, there is so much to look forward to in just a short amount of weeks. To help everyone relax, here's a list of things to look forward to for Summer and some fun ideas to plan with your friends.

Make sure you walk around the boardwalk as well as jump the waves.

2. Amusement Park

There's always a ride for someone there!

3. Working Out

Get fit to look good for those beach trips.

4. Trying New Restaurants

Grab a blanket, some food, friends, and go to your nearest park.
