The last in our Tour Across America series gives us songs that are about or mention American cities, states… and one zip code.

Did you know? Zip codes in America were first used in larger cities in the 1940s. By 1967, zip codes were placed on all mail within the US. In the early 198os we began “Zip +4” – the little four digit code that helps keep mail delivery… zippy!

Watch the 1960s promo video for zip codes here and the Zip Code song here!
