Find Cities and Towns Inside Radius
Provide a radius and address to centre your search. The map will then show any towns or cities within the radius.
Find Cities Within Radius Map
This tool can be used to find cities and towns within a particular radius of a central location. Note, there is no clear way to determine what is a town or city on a global scale so the results on this page may include or exclude some places. Get in contact if you see a big mistake and we will do our best to update the system.
- Select a radius to search within ... 1km, 5km, 10km, 20km or 50km
- Select a centre point by either
- Type an address and click / tap Search
- Click / tap Search with an empty text box to find your current location
- Click / tap on the map to indicate the center of the search
- Once the search is complete, you can see the list of towns and cities below the map. You can also tap on a marker of a result to find more details
The search radius has a limit of 50km. This cannot be increased.

Comments For This Page
I second the request for adding State code. as the radius I am looking at goes into 3 states. Otherwise Loving that i can not only see the map, but also giving me a list is super awesome. wish I could increase to 75 miles. but happy for what I have as that woudl also make it 5 states. Thanks!

How many miles is 2 hours away

Thanks for the feedback Tracey. You are right, there was an issue with the distance output beside each town. This has now been fixed.

I think I found the answer to my issue...the distances are inaccurate when the search is done in "miles", but much more accurate when done in "km".
By Tracey on 9th May 2019
My results are inaccurate. For example, my query was for cities within 60 miles of Columbia, SC. It\'s showing Pelion, SC to be 52.80 miles from Columbia and that\'s grossly inaccurate. What am I doing wrong?

This is so cool! Thank you ;)

Gail, it\'s one way
By Free Map Tools on 26th April 2019
Does a 75 mile radius mean one way or a total of there and back?

CAN\'T WE USE MILES INSTEAD OF KM
By DIANTHIA on 24th April 2019
It would be amazing to be able to find towns within a radius where you could set a minimum and maximum distance from the center point. For example, find towns from 20 to 40 miles from Boston.

It doesnt show results outside of the state.

Awesome tool. Is there a way to draw a boundary to see all of the cities within?

Hi Nina, sorry this is not possible.
By Free Map Tools on 14th March 2019
Is it possible to do a search where the towns are listed by county or borough?
By Nina on 13th March 2019
Is there a way to see cities within a high radius? Like 200 km, 300 km or 400 km?
By Simon on 10th March 2019
Mary, sorry this is not possible.

Is there a way to include the State in the results?
By mary on 27th February 2019
Hi Jason, thanks for the feedback. To confirm, you put for example 20 (miles) in the text box, but the results you get are over 20miles? Is this on both the map and text output? Can you present an example to replicate it? We are always keen to get rid of bugs when we find them!
By Free Map Tools on 6th February 2019
The query runs with no problem, but my results always go out to 80 miles, no matter how many miles I set in the parameter. I'm only looking for 24-40 miles, so it does give me my answer, it just gives more than I asked for. Not sure if that is intended or a bug, but there you go. Works perfectly, otherwise!

I enter the address and it spins and spins. I enter the town and state and it still just spins. doesn't seem to work for me.
