I'm creating a site that has a Venue custom post type, and one of the custom fields (using advanced custom fields) is the hours of operation for the business. I was going to manually find this information and plug it in myself, but that's a lot of work, and it changes seasonally, which Vermont has a lot of. That being said, I feel my best solution is to use the Google Places API.
I have absolutely no idea how to use this at this time, but I'd love to learn. I'll be researching this in my free time, but if anyone could lend me a helping hand, that would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone know if / how complicated it would be to grab the hours of operation from the Google Places API? If I was to store the "place ID" (I think that's what Google is using now) in an ACF field, could I dynamically read the hours through a template? Just tossing out ideas, but if anyone could help me with this, that would be greatly appreciated!
