With the sun still heating up the Hill Country and school settling into its full swing, it is time to crack down on work and get ready for upcoming tests. Instead of dreading your work or constantly being distracted by your laptop or cleaning your room or anything but what you are supposed to be doing, set yourself up for success with a new point of view.
Here are the 8 best spots in Boerne to study and boost your grades. Let us know if you check out any of these spots by tagging us @hcdt.realty on Instagram for a feature on our story!
The Dienger Trading Co.
Grab a cup of coffee or a fluffy cinnamon roll and settle into a morning or afternoon of dedication to your studies at The Dienger Trading Co. This particular venue also has cute latte art to fill your Instagram story during one of your breaks because let’s be honest, you want everyone else to know that you are on that study grind.
If you are an early riser, grab a taco at one of the best breakfast places in town and study away the morning at Mary’s Tacos. With the side rooms of the restaurant semi-shielded from the morning rush, it is the perfect place to study if you need noise in order to get your work done.
Boerne’s Main Plaza
If the indoors are too restrictive, take a step outside and towards the Main Plaza and gazebo on Boerne’s Main Street. With a breath of fresh air, your mind can do truly wondrous things (like knocking out that essay you have been stuck on for a week). The gazebo has some much-needed shade and a hard surface to work on. If you bring a blanket to lay out and some snacks for fuel, the Plaza will soon become one of your all-time favorite places in Boerne.
It may be obvious, but it is still worth including in this list. Open later than any other coffee shop in town, Starbucks is the perfect place to grab a late night caffeine boost in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Patrick Heath Public Library
Another apparent addition to the list is the library. Too many people in Boerne miss out on what a wonderful resource the Patrick Heath Public Library is. With computers, online databases, and actual print resources, it's a one-stop spot for any assignment you need to gather information for. Also, it is a guaranteed quiet study space for you to truly focus in on what needs to get done.
Yet another great breakfast spot that can double as a studying oasis is the Boerne Grill. Great coffee, huge breakfast plates, and comfy chairs that look out on Main Street make this a perfect place to sit back, relax, and finish up your work.
This may seem like a reach but when you really start to think about it, Whataburger is the perfect place for late night cram sessions. Let us say that it is 9:00 pm in Boerne and you have just realized that the test you thought was next month is actually tomorrow. In a small town, there are not many options to choose from if you want to get out of your house to study. Thankfully, Whataburger is open 24/7 and serves food the entire night, and you just might be prepared enough for your test if you head out to study right now.
Cibolo Creek Nature Preserve
This end of this list lands us once again in the great outdoors. From time to time you need to be outside to study, but perhaps the hustle and bustle of Main Street by the gazebo is too much of a distraction. Then pack your blanket, put on tennis shoes, and head to the Cibolo Creek Nature Preserve. There are a million places to set up and work on your assignments. From tables by the river to benches along the walking loop, you are bound to find a new study spot every time you go out.
