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.

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. You are basically photographing the same houses as the next person from across the street at the Alamo Square (park). Nothing really exciting but it does tell people that you are here... More

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 can park around Alamo square and walk around the park you get to have a great view of these lovely Victorian houses.
