A number of suggestions.

1. Be wary of free wifi from anyone due to security concerns, man in the middle attacks, traffic snooping, etc.

2. Be sure it is free before spending any money. Drive up to the spots and see if free wifi is rate limited.

3. What is free can easily be gone or not free the very next day.

4. If your wifi client (PC, phone, etc) isn't up to date with the latest security patches, you may be hacked.
