These are cool to see if you've ever seen any movie that takes place in San Francisco because it would have been in the movie for sure.

these are real iconic versions of the old San Francisco and its charming elegance from a. Time gone forever. I'm sure these will be here for another hundred years but get your children to see them today so they have the memory forever.

See my review on Alamo Square. These houses are private properties. Unless you actually know the owner/renter that's currently living there, you won't be able to go in.

When I got to the Painted Ladies they were only a couple left. Most of the neighboring lots were torn down and possibly being rebuilt. It would be quite the site if all the houses were built.

If you drive you can park around Alamo Park. Nice view, but there are many other homes that offer a beauty similiar to the Painted Ladies. The area offers so many victorian style homes.

Being a huge full house fan, I had to re-live the opening credits of the TV show and dragged my husband to Alamo Square to be at the scene of the Full House picnic. The painted ladies truly are a work of art, and although there is not much to do in the area, the painted ladies with the San... More
