This place is where the opening scene to the show was filmed. Across the street is a nice park with beautiful views. The neighborhood has several houses with beautiful architecture. The house where the show takes place is a few blocks away on Broderick. However, that house has been painted since. Overall, a nice place to walk around. Whole area... More

SF is an amazing city and full of amazing architecture. It has SO MANY Victorian houses, which has much more interesting architecture than Painted Ladies. Alamo park is also so average and seems under-maintained, just trees and grass, good for dogs. With so much to do and see in SF, I would not recommend to plan a separate trip for... More

These houses are well worth a visit f you are able to get up to them. They are lovely old victorian houses that are just picture perfect. They face a large park, which is a nice spot to relax or wander.

I have made several trips to San Francisco in the past and had never stopped to see the Painted Ladies (though I have always wanted to, as a child of the 80s/90s who watched "Full House" religiously). This time, I was there for a business trip, and had a couple hours between work requirements. I was staying in Union Square... More

This famous landmark in San Francisco is a must-see! I have seen these in postcards and books but being on location is an amazing experience. These famous houses are fronting a large park where you can have a relaxing afternoon walk or just sit and relax.

Seeing the 'Painted Ladies' across from Alamo Square has become a part of San Francisco pop culture, so after leaving the beautiful Golden Gate Park I hiked to meet the 'Ladies'. Expect lots of hills but you'll find a quaint neighborhood park (with rest rooms) that looks over this row of houses into the City skyline. For photography you'll want... More

We had to see them because we loved the show. The park was nice and quiet. All of the victorian houses were fun to look at.

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!
