Beyond the Bay in Pictures

Note: This collection will be presented as a picture a day format, which will be different from my previous photo threads.

So, with my growing success of two of my original photo threads, Bay Area in Pictures and Bay Area Transit in Pictures, I will showcase this time photos I've taken Beyond the Bay, meaning anything outside the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. Potential topics could include skyscrapers, highway views, or even public transportation, and with a picture a day format, you might see something familiar, interesting, or unique that you will enjoy! Given that I have over 3,000 images to share from this category alone, well... Enjoy the ride!

First up: Sunset in Las Vegas, with the Bellagio fountain show.

I've been to Reno multiple times, but on only two occasions I had the opportunity to take pictures of its buses. Here are three of five bus types used in the city operated by RTC Ride:

Last summer, I went to both Las Vegas and San Diego, and what I really liked the last time was the opportunity for me to take so many night shots using my two cameras at the same time.

Some more night shots from last year's Vegas vacation (the ones):

Here's one of my favorite getaway cities for a weekend: Reno, Nevada is the second largest city in the Silver State after Las Vegas. In the city, which, along with its next door neighbor, Sparks, it contains similar casinos found in Vegas, albeit smaller scale, and unique casino resorts also exist in the city. I've stayed in several hotels, and while most of them offer buffet breakfasts and dinners, some of the best views can be booked from the Peppermill Hotel or at the Grand Sierra. However, for walking to and from Downtown Reno, El Dorado and Harrah's are more convenient. Its nickname, The Biggest Little City in the World, is attributed to the city's myriad of events happening all-year round, even when snowstorms hit the area.

More Las Vegas pics from last year: these were taken at Crystals, the shopping arcade for the Aria Hotel.

As a celebration of my 7,000th post, I will revive this thread by presenting a brand new collection, showcasing my latest day trip away from the Bay Area: Santa Cruz. This beach community, located roughly 50 miles (80km) south of San Francisco, is famous for its Boardwalk, which I must say is family-friendly, affordable, and pleasant to visit. What I truly like about this place is not just the abundance of rides (especially Big Dipper, one of a few remaining wooden roller coasters operating in the country), but also its beach and municipal pier that flank the area as well beautifully, facing the Pacific Ocean. All of these images are from my Flickr collection, and hope you'll enjoy this showcase!

Part 1: Getting to Town

Thanks a lot! I'll post more Las Vegas scenes when I can.
