Geographic Regions and Area Codes in Area Code 804

Area code 804 covers a significant portion of eastern Virginia, including the Richmond Metropolitan Area, Petersburg, the Northern Neck, and the Middle Peninsula. The major cities within this area code are Richmond, Mechanicsville, and Petersburg. Additionally, it encompasses 31 counties, such as Chesterfield, Henrico, Richmond City, Hanover, and Prince George. The primary area code for this region is 804. However, due to the exhaustion of available numbers, a new overlay area code, 686, has been introduced and will be implemented in the first half of 2024.
