Welcome to the Big D! The 214 area code covers the Texas-sized city of Dallas, well-known for the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas State Fair, and Walker, Texas Ranger. As you’d expect from any Texas city, the 214 area code is packed with Lone Star State-sized fun and numerous things to do and see. Starting out in Downtown Dallas, an adventure in the 214 area code isn’t complete without visiting the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Dallas Museum of Art. Then, you can quench your thirst for craft beer and trendy digs in Deep Ellum before learning about JFK at the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. No evening in the 214 area code is complete without a stroll through Klyde Warren Park and a gaze across the stunning skyline from Reunion Tower.
The 214 area code currently serves Dallas County and an eastern portion of neighboring Tarrant County. And, while it shares coverage with the 972 area code, the 214 area code is most prominent in the cities of Dallas County and Collin County, primarily serving the cities of Dallas, Plano, Garland, Irving, and Mesquite. It stretches, however, to smaller towns such as Prosper, Seagoville, and even Lucas, Texas.
The History of 214
The History of 214
As one of the country’s first area codes used back in 1947, the 214 area code has covered Texans for years. Originally, it stretched to serve residents and businesses all the way from Forth Worth in the west to the Arkansas and Louisana borders in the east. It wasn’t until 1990 that the 214 area code was split off to accommodate more phone numbers. Today, the divide between Dallas and Fort Worth (or Dallas County and Tarrant County, respectively) is marked by varying area codes. The 214 area code personifies the Big D and extends to cover most of Dallas County, and the eastern portion of the DFW metroplex. Due to the rapid expansion of one of Texas’ biggest cities, the 972 area code was introduced to help serve more number and today is used in conjunction with the 214 area code to serve over nine million people and some of Dallas’ top Fortune 500 companies. While there currently isn’t any boundary or line regarding the assignment of a 214 or 972 number, locals associate 214 numbers with classic Dallas.
