As other reviewers have noted, we visited while two of the houses were being renovated. Our hop-on hop-off tour did not have a stop close by so after the long walk from Haight Ashbury we were disappointed upon arrival. We still took pictures! The park beside them does allow dogs off leash so be careful if you don't like dogs!

beautiful victorian homes and the park was wonderful and packed with friendly people! The day we went it was little windy and some of the houses were being renovated but overall a great experience!

This is def a must stop for anyone going to San Fran, however when we went two of them were under construction so it was a bit of a bummer. There is a really nice park to walk around and hang out in if you have time, so it kinda made it worth it. We still took pics even though... More

We were a little disappointed because two of the 7 ladies were covered in scaffolding. Appreciate that they need to be refreshed but sad that it was at the time we visited. Great views of the City in the background!

some of them were under construction or renovation when we were there. They look better on TV. Not worth the effort it took to get there.

We didn't go out of our way for this, but happened to be in the area at night. Thought I could get a nice shot, but it's not a great view at night and the houses were being worked on, no where to park...

I was really excited about seeing the Painted Ladies because I grew up watching Full House. This was nothing like what I was expecting and drove around the block several times looking for a parking spot. I never found one so I just drove on. If you are in the area it is probably worth seeing, especially if you are... More

Not a must see, its definitely not like what you see in pictures. Went out of our way to see them, we were a bit disappointed. They need a facelift, they are looking a bit rundown. Not worth the trek if you're not nearby

The houses need a facelift, as they are looking rather rundown. Two of the houses are wrapped in scaffolding, so it kind of ruins the view. I was expecting them to look like the pictures, but they really did not. It was worth a drive-by, but nothing worth stopping for.

If you know the Painted Ladies, then you grew up watching the television series, "Full House". as this was the backdrop for program. This was a must see for my wife and we had to drive around the park several times before we could find a place to park. It was a little disappointing as the houses were undergoing some... More
