Our search API got a bit of a much needed update. Previously, when you searched for a city, we would try to find all locations within the city limits and if there were none, you'd have to zoom out to find more.
Now we can search a little bit further: you would still see the city on the map, but the list of locations would contain places from further out, sorted by distance. That way if there are no markers on the map, you could still see what's available outside of the map view.
That setting is called outer search radius and you can adjust it just like anything else on your locator. Simply go to Widget > Map > Outer search radius on your dashboard. By default it's set to 1,200 miles which is approximately half of the United States.
