Cheap airfare from here to anywhere?

What good websites are there that will let me type in my location and see where I can go for cheap?

There are many websites for trying to find cheap itineraries from A to B, but seemingly far fewer that just tell you what your best options are for getting away from A.

Site59 does that, but it's limited to travel that's happening over the next 3 weeks or so.

There is Travelocity Dream Maps, where you plug in a starting city and it shows you various airfares.

Kayak.com does exactly this. Go to 'fare buzz'.

Depending on where you are at the moment, you might find skyscanner useful.

FareCast recently went into public beta; it predicts airfare prices and suggests when you should buy your ticket. It's limited to Boston and Seattle at the moment, but should have additional cities soon.

Travelzoo lists its top 20 deals weekly. It's a sprinkling of airfare, cruise, and hotel deals but there's some real gems if you look carefully and read the fine print.
