I'm looking to take a spontaneous trip for a long weekend. The date is flexible and the destination can be anywhere in the world. Is there a site that would allow me to search airfares within a date range, while keeping the destination parameters open?

Just be careful so the NSA doesn't become suspicious of your "spontaneous" trips. – IQAndreas May 14 '14 at 7:07

IMHO this is not a duplicate, because the other question is about a broad but still limited area ("3 airports within 80 km of me"), whereas this is about going anywhere at all, and most answers there are not applicable. – jpatokal May 15 '14 at 4:17
    
One time the best deal I found was by walking in to a travel agency. – pnuts Nov 7 '14 at 16:59

Sure. Skyscanner.net can do that. Just pick your departure airport and type in "everywhere" in the destination field. Then, below in the dates, pick either "Whole month" or "Whole year" and click on the Search button. Have fun!

(+1) This is a much better answer for this particular question than the answers at the one linked as a 'duplicate'. I'm glad you got yours in before the closure. – Chris Mueller May 14 '14 at 14:38
    
Excellent, I was about to post the exact same question, word by word. Thank you very much! – Gabriel Meono Mar 15 '15 at 19:16

Adioso includes this functionality and also allows searching for flights to a whole country, a broad region (“Arabian Peninsula”) or continent or even from lists of friends or attractions.

As specified in my answers here and here, azair has very powerful search options (see the advanced options), including choice of return and departure day, length of stay, period within which the trip should happen and a range of departure and arrival airports, up to the option "Take me anywhere" which is what you are looking for.

A similarly powerful search option is kiwi.com, which also offers "to anywhere" as a search option, and has options for specific dates, date range or time-to-stay.
