Just across from Alamo Park the Painted Ladies are a favorite for out of town guests I show around the city. Very hard to find parking here so don't drive up and think you'll find a spot open up anytime soon. Park a few blocks away and then make it a nice walk. Upside is they have a bathroom in... More

We drove by and tried to get a picture but there were too many trees to get a photo. Houses were very pretty though.

Uhm...some cute houses...that's all. You stay outside and look at 6 Victorianstyle houses in color. Not worth the hassle. Move along, people.

We visited Alamo Park to see Painted Lady Row. It was gorgeous. I can't imagine having a home built like that today. Even some of the glass in windows was curved. They are detailed to the max! Charming and inviting. Would have loved to see inside one. There are painted ladies all over the city tho if you have time... More

Feels like you're in the opening of Full House! Park to take a picture on the hill, or drive around the block. The houses around "The Painted Ladies" were just as neat.

I stopped by to see the famous "Painted Ladies"… Beautifully decorated houses that stand tall along this hilly street. They deserve a stop.

We needed to see them due to their famous part in the opening of Full House for both ourselves and our teenage daughters sake and they did not disappoint. Parking is tight on the streets, but doable

For the houses on their own (not the park), there really isn't much to see. The houses are cool, and being painted different colours is a bit of a novelty, but otherwise that's it. It's not even great to get photos because the street is lined with cars. There's plenty of these style of homes around the area that are... More

Always wanted to see the Victorian homes that opened the show full house. They do not look as good these days. A few are being restored but I was not impressed. It is an easy bus ride that stops at the park across the street but nothing else is there. But it was a nice day so we just walked... More

It's well worth making the effort to see this row of stunning Victorian houses. The architecture in this area is beautiful and you get some good views of the city too
