It depends. A lot of them go to the southwest U.S. desert (Tucson, Marana, Victorville, Mojave, Goodyear, etc). There are also a bunch scattered throughout the world closer to the individual airline's operation.
If there's a particular aircraft you are interested in, go to http://www.airlinerlist.com and download the list you are interested in.
Also, http://www.cactuswings.com has an excellent list of aircraft that are in storage in the southwest U.S.

Not by a long shot Ryanair737, Mojave is one of the largest but Pinal Airpark is it's equal.
Tucson, Roswell (a favourite of BA), Kingman, Victorville, San Bernardino, Smyrna and Maxton are also fairly large US locations.
I know, some will ask what states these are in but it's too easy to look up so I won't say.
Quit calling an airport ramp "Tarmac" and a taxiway "runway".
