<2>Area code (240) is an overlay for area code (301).
<3>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient.

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