OpenPhone helps business owners build a presence in any US city with phone numbers available across the country. In Los Angeles, you’ll appear local. That makes it easy for customers to see you as part of the community and recognize that your business has a local presence and a stake in the city.

Area code 323 covers nearly the entire city of Los Angeles outside of the San Fernando Valley, including Hollywood. You also find many smaller cities and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County immediately to the south and east. Area code 323 is an overlay of Los Angeles’ original 213 area code. When 323 was introduced, it became the primary area code for most of the city, but the two area codes covered different territories. That’s no longer the case — 323 completely overlays area code 213 and both cover downtown Los Angeles.

Business owners should know that from Pasadena to West Hollywood, they can contact other Los Angeles businesses and customers in area code 323. Most will be in the biggest city of the zip code, Los Angeles itself, with a population of 3,898,747. Area code 323 touches just one county: Los Angeles, CA.

But there are plenty of nearby area codes in a city this big. Apart from overlay 213, there are 310/424 (Los Angeles, CA), 442/760 (Oceanside, CA), 626 (Pasadena, CA), 657/714 (Anaheim, CA), and 747/818 (Los Angeles, CA). Prospects in all of those area codes recognize 323 as local.
