Is there a limit to the number of tiles a city can use in Civ 5?

Is there a limit to the number of tiles a city can work? I’ve noticed that I can purchase and use tiles several spaces away from my city. How far can I go?

Answer

Up to 3 hexes away, 36 hexes total

Plus one more for the hex the city is on.

Civilization 5

All of the previous games in the Civilization Series used squares for the grid, and the maximum city radius was 2ish squares away. Take a look at the image below for what I mean by 2ish. (In words, the exact city radius is a 3×3 grid centered on the city, with one square from each corner removed.) That was a total of 20 squares, plus one more for the city square.

Civilization 4, and earlier
