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

  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.

Comments For This Page

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!

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.

Repeated some towns and cities A LOT

I first tried a zip code and the results were cities in the Ukraine. When I entered the city, state and county (ie: pine city, minnesota, USA) it worked great! I will be bookmarking this site. Perfect for target marketing data.

I was looking for towns in Minnesota. It found towns on the island of Bermuda. Not what I wanted!

Does not work for Bryan Ohio. 60-mile radius search turns up 224 towns and cities. 40 mile radius turns up 220 towns and cities. This is not right!It won't show me their location or their distance on the map.

This tool worked great for me.
By Sharon Cook on 26th November 2018

Great tool. It will be even better when you add city population size as filter. Currently is returning too many hits.

I like this, maybe further narrow the search by doing *from to away from your town
