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

So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Wando). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Wando or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Wando) 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 Wando.
