A Peoria area code can help your business grow in the 9th largest city in Arizona. Peoria covers 179 square miles in Maricopa County and has an estimated population of 164,000 people. The city is located in the central part of the state, and area code 623 is home to Peoria as well as the cities of Glendale, Sun City, Buckeye, Youngtown, Goodyear and others. The city is mostly known as a suburb of the capital city because it is only 13 miles from Phoenix, but it also sits 127 miles from Tucson, 352 miles from San Diego, and 272 miles from Las Vegas.
The city of Peoria was first filed with Maricopa County in 1897 and began to grow due to its strategic location between Phoenix and the booming Vulture Gold Mine. The Luke Air Force base was established near Peoria during World War II which helped the population increase, and the city was officially incorporated in 1954. It enjoyed steady growth throughout the second half of the 20th century, and the economy continued to expand and diversify. Now Peoria boasts a healthy economy and sits comfortably as the 9th largest city in Arizona and 156th biggest in the United States.
