You may have checked in to a venue at some time in the past using foursquare, however, have you ever used the foursquare “explore” online map to explore venues in your area? You can use the service, powered by over 2,000,000 checkins - by logging into your foursquare account (you do have an account right?) and then going to https://foursquare.com/explore.
The service should detect your approximate location and serve up a map that looks familiar to you. Then the fun starts… now start exploring local hot spots like coffee shops, nightlife venues, shopping spots, popular restaurants, or “Top” picks. Optionally, you can view places that foursquare recommends, places where you’ve checked in, places that your friends have visited, or see places that are offering foursquare specials – very handy!
