In late 1989, the U.S. Postal Service approved the North Potomac name for a region surrounded by the Montgomery County communities of Darnestown, Travilah, Gaithersburg and Rockville—and the Zip code used by most of North Potomac, 20878, is also used by Gaithersburg. North Potomac is bordered roughly by Maryland Route 28 (Darnestown Road), Travilah Road and Jones Lane, and is about 21 miles from Washington, D.C.
