Hi everyone.


I found the entire list of categories that exist in Google Places/Businesses API. There used to be a file which has those categories organized in main categories such as: Restaurants, Nightlife, Activities, etc. Unfortunately, I can't find it anymore.


Can someone help me? Thank you so much in advance

Hi @Ardon W,


Here is a list of common categories you can use for describing the category of your business. For a list of valid category IDs, and the mappings to their human readable names for the Category object, please check out the category list.
