It's the golden age of flights to Europe. Price wars have pushed fares down so low that it's no longer mind-boggling when an airline offers a one-way flight to Europe for $99 or less. However, despite the deluge of deals, the majority of flights aren't of the bargain basement variety.

Nonetheless, Kayak.com reports flights to Europe are the cheapest they've been over the last three summers. Kayak collected data from its own site to highlight the cheapest summer European destination out of every US state using the median price to that location over the course of the summer. 

Below you'll find details on those destinations and median prices highlighted in the map above. For states without an international airport, Kayak assigned it the nearest international airport.

One of the biggest takeaways is that the cheap trips to Iceland are real. Reykjavik was the cheapest destination for 25 of the 62 international airports on which Kayak provided data. You can get to Iceland on the cheap from all over the US, and it's definitely worth your time. Dublin, which was the city that appeared the second most-frequently, is a slightly more surprising cheap destination for many around the US.

Kayak provided data on multiple international airports for some states. That information is below, while the map above only shows the cheapest of those flights.
