Oakland, California, lies directly across the bay from San Francisco. During the California Gold Rush in the mid-18th century, it served as the main staging point for miners and cargo traveling between the Bay Area and the Sierra foothills. Today, the city continues to serve as a major cargo terminus, and its seaport is the fourth busiest container port in the United States.
