Downloading list of zip codes and US cities

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm not sure if this belongs in the forum or not, but I'll give it a shot.

I'm looking for a free downloadable file that lists all zip codes, US cities, counties, and states with time zone, Lat and Long. Unfortunately the only thing I can find online is at https://zipcodedownload.com/Directory/ZIP5, or http://www.zip-code-database.com. While these are free, I cannot download a file and so I'm looking for an updated current file I can download. If anybody has an up-to-date source for this I'd be grateful.

If I need to move this topic just let me know!

curious why would want to maintain this data, bloating your solution - don't get me wrong I've done it myself it does increase the size of your backups and can be slow to 'lookup' 

you might consider just using an API call to a service to validate an address. smartystreets or googleplaces come to mind.

You can see an implementation of this over at https://www.geistinteractive.com/2018/10/01/introduction-to-karbonfm/
