Best Places to WFH That Isn’t Home


It’s getting warmer, the birds are chirping, and Summer feels like it’s creeping up on us… all of which makes it much harder to work from home. If you WFH, and feel the urge to be out in the great outdoors like we do, check out this list of our favorite spots in the city to WFH (not from home). We’re talking spots where you can park it for a few hours to work your 9-5, your freelance gigs, or whatever. All outdoor spots because it’s Spring!
