At 3 p.m. you get the urge to trek on down to Waterfront Park. And since you're a strong, independent American, you'll do what you please, when you please.

But at 3:30 it happens: Your friend calls you up and is just raving about this video of an old grandmother and her pet chihuahua that you have to see. 

But you've got no Wi-Fi! You've been crippled by the Internet gods! You can hear them ROFLTAO from here.

But it doesn't have to be so, not with this handy guide to Charleston's wireless hot spots. Just be sure to give it a glance before you head out on your mission.

And don't forget that this is an open Google map that anyone can edit and improve. If you're not that tech savvy, simply tip us off about any spots to add down below in the comments.

Update October 11, 2011: Free Wi-Fi has come to Goose Creek thanks to Google.
