API Endpoints

The Foursquare API provides methods for accessing a resource such as a venue, tip, or user. In spirit with the RESTful model, each resource is associated with a URL. For example, information about Clinton Street Baking Co can be found at

https://api.foursquare.com/v2/venues/40a55d80f964a52020f31ee3

(you need to supply your own credentials and version as extra parameters)

Given a resource, you can then drill into a particular aspect, for example

https://api.foursquare.com/v2/venues/40a55d80f964a52020f31ee3/tips

Each returned tip will have its own ID, which corresponds to its own resource URL, for example

https://api.foursquare.com/v2/tips/49f083e770c603bbe81f8eb4

Before diving into the endpoints below, it's generally useful to read our Getting Started Guide for an overview of high-level concepts and use cases.
