Sample ZIP Codes from All 50 States (and more)

Skip to content

I needed sample ZIP codes from all 50 states, so that I could test a website feature I’ve been working on. There are many sites that allow you to look up a ZIP code by city and state, but I was looking for a quick reference all on one page.

I couldn’t find one right away, so I built my own. I thought it may be useful to someone else, so I’m posting it here.

[Update, 11-Dec-2014: When I posted this initially, I accidentally transposed the ZIP codes for Annapolis, MD, and Boston, MA. I have fixed that now.]

How is the postal code written in English?

Regarding the spelling and form of postal codes, there is a small difference between British and American English. Additionally, the term for designating the postal code is different: In American English, zip code is used; in British English, postcode and postal code are standard. Compare in detail:

  • The British postal code is divided into two groups of letters and numbers. The first group represents the city (the place) or region, and the second group embodies the address. Examples of typical British style:
    • MK7 6AJ
    • RM10 5RL
  • The postcode in the USA is called zip code and consists of five digits. Furthermore, the two-letter abbreviation for the respective federal state precedes the code. Examples of American usage:
    • CA 95383
    • AL 54677

Current zip/postal codes are presented on a special service created by America.

Important! When filling in the address, you must take into account that the zip code consists of 5 digits, and the postal code of 6!

The six-digit extension defines a zone within a particular city. If we take Russia as an example, then the sixth figure is a district or quarter.

Important! Large houses have a personal postal code.

When using a virtual address, you must correctly fill in the information for the delivery of goods. The presented information is divided into blocks and the client does not need to independently figure out in which form to indicate the data.
