The Google Places API can be used to find detailed information about places across a wide range of categories. 

The Google Places API allows you to query for place information on a variety of categories, such as: establishments, prominent points of interest, geographic locations, and more. 

You can search for places either by proximity or a text string. A Place Search returns a list of Places along with summary information about each Place; additional information is available via a Place Details query.
