Find Cities Within Radius Map



Find towns and cities within km of




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.


  1. Select a radius to search within ... 1km, 5km, 10km, 20km or 50km
  2. 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
  3. 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.

Indianapolis, the capitol of Indiana, isn't even on this map. GET REAL

Useless radius limit.
On 24th September 2019

Needs to have a wider radius max than 50km. I%u2019m not even sure what you%u2019d use this for if it just tells you the hundreds of towns within 50km.

hope you guys can add their state also
By Joeffrey on 26th August 2019

Steve, sorry, 50km / 31 miles is the limit.
By Free Map Tools on 23rd August 2019

Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to increase the Mile radius to 100?
By Steve on 23rd August 2019

Hi Steve, as this is world-wide tool, its not possible to add something like this as states do not have an equivalent elsewhere.
By Free Map Tools on 23rd August 2019

Is there a way to include State abbreviations next to the city/town names- difficult to determine which cities/towns fall in a different state
By Steve on 23rd August 2019

I just love the site. Thanks for the imformation. To bad I couldnt click on the output names of towns/cities and find out more information. But maybe it will be expanded maybe not. I still can copy the towns and google search the imformation needed.
By Sam on 12th July 2019

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
On 18th May 2019

Thanks for the feedback Tracey. You are right, there was an issue with the distance output beside each town. This has now been fixed.
By Free Map Tools on 9th May 2019

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?
By Tracey on 9th May 2019

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?
By Gail on 26th April 2019

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.
