Is there a tool/website where you can name a city and find cheap fares from there?

    Hi all,

    I live in in Portland, OR (PDX) and rarely see exceptional deals on The Flight Deal Newsletter or in the mileage run threads. Is there a way I can key PDX into a flight search engine and then find exceptionally good deals originating in my city? Not that I will be doing mileage runs, but it'd be nice to periodically check and then perhaps plan a trip/vacation based on what might be available at an especially good fare. I know that AirfareWatchdog has a fare alert, but that depends on someone looking for/finding something. I'd love to see all of what is out there that is some percentage cheaper than typical fares.

    Thanks.

    I will second google flights. Very easy to use and easy to change dates and get price updates.

    Thanks. I subscribe to airfarewatchdog for PDX but I wanted something beyond that. I think Google Flights might be the ticket. Thanks again!
