Next, let’s look at why you might need a 805 area code.

Where is area code 805?

The 805 area code is located in southern California and covers Santa Barbara, Ventura, San Luis Obispo, and parts of Kern counties.

Located in the Pacific time zone, the 805 prefix was created in 1957 as a split from the 213 area code and originally covered only Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. In 2000, the 805 area code was split again, creating the 661 area code for Kern County. The 805 area code currently covers an estimated 3.4 million people.

The 805 area code is bordered by the 310 area code to the south and west, the 831 area code to the north, and the 747 and 818 area code to the east. The 805 area code includes most of Ventura County and all of Santa Barbara County, which includes cities like:

  • Santa Barbara
  • Santa Maria
  • Ventura
  • Oxnard
  • Thousand Oaks
  • Camarillo
  • Los Alamos
  • Isla Vista
  • San Luis Obispo

Why your business needs a Santa Barbara area code

With local presence, you can avoid the hassle of setting up a physical office in Santa Barbara, Oxnard, San Luis Obispo, or other cities within this area code.

Ventura county is a key agricultural center in California, so if your business operates in or with this industry, it's especially important to have a phone number with the 805 area code.
