<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Delano - 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 Delano). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Delano 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 from Point A (ie- Delano) 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 Delano.
