I'm looking to map business hours for a given city in the USA to show the number of businesses open by time of day. Is there a way to get, at the least:

{business name, business type, opening hours, location}

for a particular area.

I looked at the Yelp API but I don't see:

  1. How to get a dump for a particular area
  2. Opening hours as a returned value

Google Places - Places Details does have opening hours but it would appear that I first need to generate a list of all places of interest within my area.

This CSV dataset contains opening-closing hours for thousands of US hotels/restaurants/bars/museums/etc:

Business type, name and location are included as well.

You will need to filter out:

  • Businesses that have no documented opening-closing hours
  • Businesses that are not in the USA (there are columns for city name and latitude/longitude, you might use that)

  • Thank you! Good resource. Unfortunately I was looking at a lower-income neighbourhood, which is unlikely to be well documented on wikivoyage – raphael Feb 25 '15 at 19:14
