Theyre those corners of the world that you just cant get out of your mind. Places so special, or just plain weird, that they take on their own personalities. National Geographic scoured the United States to include just such places in its ZipUSA series.
This month break open the books, blast the heavy metal, and get into life in 50012, an Iowa zip code populated exclusively by college dorm-dwellers.
Other zips in the works range from a bustling East Coast waterfront to an antics-rich New Hampshire summer camp.
