Throughout the solar system. We think of the "asteroid belt" as a roughly toroidal (doughnut-shaped) region of space between Mars and Jupiter, but in fact there are asteroids close to Earth, in between Earth and Venus, and in closer to the Sun than Venus is. We don't have a good reckoning as to how many asteroids are out beyond Jupiter; most asteroids are too small to be seen, that far away. But we can be confident that there are quite a few!

Beyond the orbit of Neptune, we no longer call them "asteroids"; they are referred to as "Trans-Neptunian Objects" or even further out, "Kuiper Belt Objects". But they are merely asteroids by another name.
