When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Ranburne or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Ranburne) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Ranburne. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Ranburne
