Area code 763 is the telephone numbering plan code for the northwestern suburbs of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, including cities such as Maple Grove. It was created in 2000 along with area code 952 (southwest suburbs) when they were carved out of area code 612, which now only contains the city of Minneapolis and a few inner-ring locales.
The area code splits in the Twin Cities are unusual - they split along municipal, rather than central office, boundaries. A sizeable number of exchanges are thus divided between two area codes, and a few are divided among three.
