Question: What is the Washington DC Zip Code?

Each month a number of Internet users google this question in an attempt to find out which zip code works for Washington DC. Here is the problem. There isn’t just one zip code for the whole city. In fact, there are up to approximately 60 different codes which correspond to the DC area. So, as you can see there isn’t an easy answer to this question.

Fortunately, it isn’t very hard to get the zipcode you are looking for as long as you know the street address.

If you know the street address for which you need to find a zip code just go to the front page and enter your street address and tap the convert to zip code bar.
