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

My sister and I visited the Painted Ladies today and they were everything we expected them to be, just like the pictures! We relaxed in Alamo Square, surrounded by trees, with a view of these iconic houses and the San Fransisco skyline in the background. We got there with a tour bus which made it easy and took an Uber... More

The houses had obviously been undergoing work when we went which seemed a bit disappointing but needed. Not quite what I expected.

The rain quit just so we could walk about in the park and check out the Painted Ladies across the street. An excellent way to spend a couple of hours checking out on of San Francisco's unique areas. We should have brought a sack lunch and a blanket and watched the sunlight dance off the colors of the girls facades!

We were on the hop on hop off bus and decided to walk to the park and spend some time admiring these quaint little homes. They are certainly worth the visit and if you walk to the opposite side of the park there are other beautiful houses to look at all so. We wandered passed a little shop and bought... More

It was a sunny Saturday, and after a stop for coffee and ice cream on Octavia Street, we walked to the Painted Ladies on Steiner for photo ops. Park goers were creating large bubbles with giant slingshot bubble makers on the hill above the sidewalk, and when the huge bubbles drifted down toward us, we were able to touch them... More

A fine view of the town with the "ladies" in front - seen from the park. But there is so many fine housing areas to see this place. Makes the ladies drown a bit.

We visited in February 2015 as my kids are huge Full House fans. It was great to see the houses and the park. Quite a hike up there, but worth it. Very charming part of the city.

The painted ladies is definitely worth stopping by, especially since it is not far from the main attractions. It's where Full House was partially filmed (the intro). It's unique architecture to San Francisco to have so many homes next to each other that are identical. Worth stopping by if you've got a car, or a quick muni ride.
