Most resource sites, such as Allareacodes.com, collect the information from NANPA. All Area Codes provides a Search by City lookup tool on its home page, allowing online users to input a city name and access the area code for that particular location. The site also has an interactive U.S. and Canada area code map and options to search area codes by state or by city number using the area code finder.

To search area codes by location using NANPA's website, navigate to Nationalnanpa.com and click the Area Code Maps on the home page or on the menu on the left side bar. Choose between an HTML version or a Flash version of the U.S. area code maps. The Flash version uses an interactive map and a scrolling menu, while the HTML version offers a simpler list of states and map. Choose and click a state to view the area code on that specific state. NANPA regulates and organizes the allocation of telephone prefixes and area codes in North America and other U.S. territories.
