Google Maps Shows Popular Searches

If you do a search for a US location in Google Maps, you'll find a list of popular queries associated with that location. For Mountain View, Google Maps lists: Stanford University, Microsoft, HP, a hotel and an amphitheater, but there's no sign of Google.

This could help you explore a city using the wisdom of the crowds: the most popular hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions. It would be nice if Google clusters the searches and shows you an automatically-generated guide of a city.
