Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Florida's counties, including Hillsborough, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Sun City Center - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Sun City Center or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
