The painted ladies may be buterflies, but these homes are the ones that get searched more often. The view from the park overlooking these Ladies is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l.. We reached at around sun down, waited for the lights to come one and spent nearly 2 hours at the place, in the chilly, sub 10 degree Celsius climate for the view, completely... More

My husband and I spent the day at Fisherman's Wharf yesterday and on our way out of the city (as planned)we went to see the Painted Ladies. I knew that they were part of the Full House opening scene so I absolutely HAD to visit! The streets were packed around Alamo Square Park (also in the opening scene) and we... More

These homes are so charming and colorful! I wonder how you could live in a home so close to each other. They are a sure symbol of SF stop by and admire them.

Nice houses in wonderful colours! I mean, they are not very different from the house over the street and in the other blocks but that does'nt mean that they are not nice to look at. Also, the view from Alamo Park (?) overlooking the city is amazing.

Colorful, beautiful and Victorian. The painted ladies invite the photo shoot, you can not immortalize them.

It was a nice view and kind of unique. I thought it needed some upkeep and wasn't as spectacular as people have said

The Painted Ladies at Alamo Square is a must see. It wont take long so only plan to be there like 10-20 min. We walked around the park and saw some of the other homes in the area. Just go sit in the park and enjoy the sunshine and take in the sights and sounds of the beautiful city.
