Where is the 310 Area Code?
310 can quite easily be considered a major area code of California. It covers areas in Southern California including parts of West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood. It was created in 1991 from a large piece of area code 213 (one of the oldest Calirornia codes dating back to 1947.) Over the the last 20 or so years it has undergone some major changes including multiple new area code "overlays" such as 424.
Below I have included a few pictures of some of the wonderful cities that 310 area code includes. With the huge demand for new phone numbers increasing with the population of California it would not surprise me if they all eventually end up having their own unique area codes. It makes you wonder, what happens when these little 3-digit area codes are depleted?
