Alamo Park is another great open space in San Francisco, with some truly lovely views of the city. Of course there are the famous Painted Ladies along Steiner Street, which Full House fans will remember from the show's opening, but all of the houses around here are gorgeous. A great place to hang out on a sunny day.

I would definitely say this is a must go if you are around the area. We went on Saturday early morning and the parking was already kind of full. I suggest to go early in order to find a parking space. This place is like a square park, but you could only see the "Painted Ladies" or the 7 famous... More

Love the pink ladies, nothing more than just a group of good looking houses, but the park surrounding it is beautiful and you can get some really beautiful pics around here!

When you stand at the top of the park, it feels like you're standing on top of San Fran - a great to way to 'get above it all'. There's plenty of space for a picnic or to just sit on the grass and read with a background view of the city. I wouldn't travel across the city to come... More

A great park for hanging out. Views of downtown, the painted ladies, and even the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't forget to walk around the park there's views from all sides and bring a sweater it's chilly at times. There's a bathroom, tennis courts, and a playground in the middle of the park.

This was a must do for us since we grew up watching Full House. This is a great park with awesome views! We visited the actual Full House house which is a few miles away first and then came here which is way more fun than looking at a house on a residential street.

We did nearly miss this one, but it was one of the really impressive parts of our visit. The park is not a tourist place, feels like all local students and local people being here just enjoying the view on San Francisco. So, it is quite relaxing to be a bit away from the masses. But the view is impressive,... More

We came here to see the painted ladies, and it was not a disappointment. They were beautiful and unique, just like San Francisco itself. It was good to get outside of Union Square where we were staying and to see the outer neighborhoods of the city. We took the bus, and it was easy enough to navigate it all with... More
