In case you haven't heard it a gazillion times already, the opening ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics are tonight. The athletes and their families have arrived, as have the majority of tourists who purchased the 8 million tickets for the 17 days of events.

This means that while Heathrow and other London airports aren't nearly as crazy as they were earlier this week, the center of the city is swelling with sightseers. So, for locals who'd like to stay as far away from all that as possible, or for visitors who want to know where all the action's at, location-sharing social app Foursquare has tapped their stats to discover the busiest venues around London:
