What Cities Are in Two Different Time Zones?

Tanur Tsiknakis and her husband, Michalis, have a unique challenge in their home: two sets of clocks that must follow two different time zones, one hour apart. This is a reality for many people living in cities that straddle two different time zones. One such example is Bullhead City, Arizona and Laughlin, Nevada. These two cities are separated by the Colorado River, but they both observe Pacific Standard Time.

This means that while the two cities are only a few miles apart, they are in different time zones. Cyprus is another country that has two different time zones. The capital city of Nicosia is split between the northern and southern parts of the island. The northern part of the city follows Eastern European Time, while the southern part follows Eastern Mediterranean Time.

Time zone boundaries can be quite complex and often don't follow state or country borders. For example, the state of Indiana is in the Eastern Time Zone, but some counties in the western part of the state observe Central Time. If you're ever unsure about what time zone a city or town is in, you can use an online tool to look it up. The United States Naval Observatory website has a tool that allows you to view the current time in all cities and towns in the United States.
