Currently if you want to see or change your local search settings and you aren’t signed in to Google, you have to modify them inside Google’s “View customizations” link on the results page.
For example, if you’re planning a trip to Chicago, changing your location to Chicago will bring local results when you search for [weather], [hotels], and [restaurants]. Google says you can specify to the ZIP code or be as general as an entire country.
