These buildings give a history of SF. After the earthquakes, fires etc that took place in the early 1900s, new houses came up - specially in the leafy Alamo Square. Initially they were all uniformaly drab gray from war surplus paint. Later, in the 60s, the same houses got a massive make-over in looks. The old Victorian beauties were dressed... More

After our late lunch at Boudin on the Wharf, we spent time around the Fisherman’s Wharf area before heading back to our accommodations. As we had some free time it was decided that we should see the “Painted Ladies” before heading to “Off the Grid” for dinner. It was not my idea to go to this attraction but someone in... More

Every move you will ever watch about San Fran will feature these gorgeous little houses on the hill called The Painted Ladies. There's not actually much to see but as they are a movie icon, take the bus tour and it will take you there.

These beautiful homes are amongst many in and around San Francisco. We got some great shots of them from Alamo park across the road.

Just wanted to put a warning on here - we parked our rental car close to Alamo square today and it was broken into and out cases stolen. We have now been told (could someone not have said sooner?!) that this happens all the time and thiefs can spot rental cars by the reg plate so if there's as much... More

Easy bus ride to the park. It was a nice saturday so many people were out having picnics in the park. Fun sport to sit and catchup with friends or have a relaxing spot during your weekend. The houses are beautiful and a wonderful backdrop.

This is the famous view you always see of the seven houses on the hill with the SF skyline in the background. Definitely worth a look.

Short row of historical housrs. Nice to see, across from a large park. If you have a car, it's nice to drive around and see some of the other homes. Close to farmers market and Sunday. Not far from Japan town.
