New API Version Available
If you added Foursquare after 11/18/21, you automatically have access to the new version (v3) of the API. Please refer to our Places API documentation to ensure you're viewing the correct information to successfully implement Foursquare technology!
For those who are already using the current (v2) version of the API, you may continue to do so or elect to upgrade now. Please contact Foursquare Developer Support for more information.
Returns a list of venues near the current location, optionally matching a search term.
Note that most of the fields returned inside a venue can be optional. The user may create a venue that has no address, city, or state (the venue is created instead at the lat/long specified).
