The 14th most populous city in the United States and the 4th most populous in California is best known for its Golden Gate bridge, cable cars, steep hills lined by Victorian houses, Nob Hill, Pacific Heights, Twin Peaks, and an ethnically diverse and tolerant cosmopolitan community. Some islands also belong to the city, including Alcatraz, Treasure Island, Yerba Buena and more smaller islands. Boosted by the California Gold Rush and decimated by the infamous 1906 earthquake and fire, the city that was rebuilt is located near the San Andreas and Hayward faults, where minor tremors are a common occurence and a daily reminder of San Francisco's geographic location. Its mild climate offers little seasonal variation in temperature, which remains on the mild side, even in summer, at an average of only 70F (21C). Sports, performing arts, museums, excellent restaurants, entertainment and nightlife, and a good public transport network, contribute to the high standard of San Francisco's attractive and liberal lifestyle.
