How many times zones are in the US?
This question has more than one answer. The US has four time zones, and the closest time zone to Paris is on the East Coast. If you are asking about how many time zones Paris is from the East Coast, then the answer is 6. However, 3 other time zones exist in the United States, each one further away from the East Coast.
Six time zones are present in the 48 Contiguous US States and all Canadian provinces. Four are shared between the two countries while two are present only in Canada. If you want to include Alaska, then there are eight time zones (Alaskan and Aleutian). And if including Hawaii, the number stays at eight since Hawaii is on the same time as the Aleutian Islands.
There are four time zones in the US that are continuously connected to each other geographically (48 states, excluding Alaska and Hawaii).
