  • Free WiFi at Coffee Shops

Many coffee shops offer free WiFi. Starbucks, Second Cup, as well as local sellers are good bets. Most require you to make a purchase, so it's not 100% free WiFi. One drink per hour should suffice.

  • Free WiFi at Airports

Sometimes free, sometimes not. Offered throughout the airport, or only in select areas. It really varies. Check the website of the airport you have in mind.

  • Free WiFi at Fast Food Joints

Subway, Burger King and McDonalds offer free Wifi at select locations. McDonalds alone has over 12,000 restaurants in the US with free WiFi.
