How do I add/create a place?

You can create a place by going to, signing into your account, and then searching for the place you want to create in the search box. You will be redirected to the Explore page where a list of possible places will appear to the left of the map. If your place does not already exist on Foursquare, you can create it here.

You can also create a place on your phone by tapping the "Check In" button in the Foursquare app, searching for the place (this step is important!), and then if you can't find it, scroll down to the bottom of the list and click "Add this place."

When doing this, please be sure that you adhere to our style guide!
