    If you are going to be near any college, you can usually access the Internet for free (no login required). Most Boston area colleges have wired and/or wireless networks that are open to visitors (if you have your own laptop with you) and computers scattered all over the place for use by anyone that visits the place. You may not be able to print anything, but you can definitely read/write Email.

    A lot of hotels have computers available for guest use, you should check with the one you're staying at.

    Check carefully on hotels.

    We vacationed at a Marriott Springhill Suites in FL and they had a couple of computers, printers, etc. FREE to those staying there, plus free wired access all over the place to use your own laptop. I think it was this "brand's" policy to provide free access.

    I stayed in a Marriott Courtyard in CT and found that they wanted ~$11/day for computer access in the rooms and had no small business center free for the residents.

    I stayed in the Marriott Hotel in Nashua, NH and they charged for everything as well. I think it is this "brand's" policy to charge for absolutely everything!

    So, even within a chain, you need to check the details very carefully.

    Burlington has a satellite campus of my alma mater, Northeastern University. I have no idea if they have free use computers setup on that campus, but somehow I won't be surprised if they don't require a login UID/Password. The more liberal liberal arts colleges in Downtown Boston are more likely to be more "computer friendly". I know that Simmons College is wide open, as I used to do IT support there a few years ago.

    Enjoy your trip here.

    Cinderella,

    I do NOT know if this place still exists, but the website seems to be updated as of 2005. It looks like it might be a kids hangout, not a place that you might enjoy, but what the hey.

    The Internet Connextion, 212 Cambridge St, Burlington, MA 01803, 781-224-0373

    Another thought . . . I think we were missing the forest for the trees! Check the Burlington Public Library! All public libraries in MA are open to anyone that walks in. Most libraries have computers free for use of patrons . . . I don't think most restrict it to town residents. Also an increasing number of libraries are providing wireless access so you can use your own computer there for free as well. A lot quieter environment than I envision for The Internet Connextion I noted above.

    Bingo! Good guess on my part. Here's the URL for the Burlington Public Library.
    http://burlingtonpubliclibrary.org/

    The Reference Services page mentions that they DO have wireless access for patrons to use with their own laptops.

    Most of us New Englanders don't like anything above 80 either...that's why some of us cherish our crappy winters! I'm really missing snow right now :(

    Glad you had a good time here in the states though!
