None of these homes are the actual house full house was taped in but they are the infamous houses in the theme song. Being a fan of the show, I am so glad I saw them! Victorian homes are beautiful!

It was nice to have a walk around this park and admire the view while joggers and playful dogs did their thing (separately). It was great to see the group of buildings on the border known as the painted ladies. There was a public bathroom on site, I'm not sure how clean it was since I didn't go in, but... More

I walked up to this park late one winter afternoon with my brother. The views in all directions were unparalleled. Came upon a man playing a sax, sitting on the stone wall. Viewed the Painted Ladies, with downtown San Francisco in the background. Loved the green space in the middle of the city, definitely worth the visit. Felt very calm... More

So many people come here because of Full House. And they think all the houses around there are like these. Nope, just a few scattered around the city and these few are now the crowd jewel of Queen Anne homes. So it's nice to hang out at the park for a bit and people watch. Especially on a hot day...

Upon entering this park you can see what a wonderful addition this is for the locals. There is a dog park, a playground, and tennis courts. As a tourist it provided nice views of the city.

An iconic view of the famous townhouses with the city skyline as a backdrop. Wonderful. Close to the famous Haight Ashbury district, another great place to spend time.

This is a nice park to see the famous Alamo houses, and there's a nice view of the city. Its steep uphill, but well worth the views.

Love the Painted Ladies, the views of the city, and the neighboorhood. We grabbed lunch at a neighboorhood spot, walked here, and had a peaceful afternoon. Parking can be difficult, but can be found.
