We really enjoyed the Victorian Homes and the view of them from across the street in Alamo Park was beautiful. It looks just like in the movies and TV shows.

Alamo Square is a beautiful park, great for a picnic or just resting your feet. The view is awesome and the painted ladies beautiful. Only thing missing Uncle Jesse.

I sat with friends at Alamo Park with the Painted Ladies in the Background. Definitely a picturesque place to go to relax with friends!

Whomp whomp!!!! Soo, the pretty ladies are cool to see. The Alamo park is awesome as well (because part of Full House opening was taped there :)). that being said, 2 of the "ladies" were all covered by scaffolding to get updated/repainted. I understand, this is necessary, but basing my review off of our experience, I can't rate it high.... More

If you're at the Alamo Square there's no way to miss the houses. You've seen it in movies, you've seen it in picures and still it won't seem like you have seen it before becaise it's such an adorable view!

Visited these lovely painted houses on recent trip to San Francisco and enjoyed seeing them but did find many more as we walked to Haight Ashbury. The views from Alamo Square Park where the painted ladies are situated are fabulous-worth the visit

Visited San Fran in mid August, it was freezing cold, took the bus to see the Painted Ladies, its really only 7 houses that are painted different colors, one of them had scaffolding covering the front, maybe i missed something special about these houses. The park is tiny, they must have used some imagination while filming the opening of Full... More

We only visited here because our daughter wanted a photo of them, having missed them on her own recent trip to SF. Whilst they were certainly nice houses, I fail to see why such a fuss is made over them. I can only imagine that it is because they are considered old by American standards. If there is something else... More

When I visited San Francisco recently, I went to see the painted ladies. I didn't know what to expect, but I was not disappointed. The view from the park across from the houses was spectacular, I took some great pictures, well worth a visit whilst visiting this magnificent city.

Loved seeing the painted ladies from the Full House series! (These houses are not the actual full house 'house' btw) The park itself is actually very quiet and peaceful. I was worried from looking at recent pictures that they would be working on one of the houses, but we lucked out and got our perfect picture of all the Painted... More
