“If you are in the area it's worth checking out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My girlfriend and I were staying at a hotel about 5-6 blocks away, so we took the time to walk to Alamo Park to view the Painted Ladies. I had seen them 3 years ago from a tour bus and thought they stood out. My impression now is that they need a painting as they seemed duller than my memory recalled. Definitely a cool sight and viewing from the top of Alamo Park is nice. My opinion - if you are in the area, stop by and check them out. But I would not go out of my way to see them. There are lots of other things to see and do in SF more worthwhile.

“Great photo op”

If you grew up watching Full House, you will love this. The homes are really beautiful. They make for some great pictures.

“Stop, snap and move on”

Not sure what all the fuss was about. Drive past take a photo and tick it off your list. Top of the park allows a fairly unobstructed view.
