You’ll get a map at TypeCon with relevant sites and dining information, but it’s always wise to travel with a comprehensive handbook of the local area. Not For Tourists produces simple, useful guides to U.S. cities without gaudy advertising and other superfluousity. Their entire Boston book is available as a free download (yes, really!).

Print maps 3, 4, and 15 for a handy reference of banks, coffee shops, pharmacies, landmarks, shopping, nightlife, and donuts in the areas surrounding the Hyatt Regency (the conference hotel) and MassArt (site of the workshops).

Bus and subway lines are also clearly marked.
