Owner description: A famous stretch of colorful Victorian-style house.
Reviewed April 4, 2018

The painted ladies are a row of Victorian style homes located in Alamo Square. It is one of the most photographed attractions in San Francisco; traditionally the homes are in the foreground and the San Francisco skyline in the background. I found it to be a worthwhile experience and I think you will too.

The view from the street across from the houses is well worth the drive. You almost get a 180 view of downtown San Fran and the Bay. However, we had such a difficult time finding the right spot without impeding traffic. There was a lot of construction at the park and it took about 6 times circling the large park/block to find the sweet spot. I'm glad we did it and it was worth it, but try to plan to go around off hours.

There is a park across the road where you can get good views of the houses without being too intrusive to the residents. We went early afternoon on a weekday and wasn't too busy. Cool to see in person after seeing it on tv and its only a quick stop.

A MUST-SEE when you’re in SAN FRAN... There’s a park across the street and you can get a really nice picture of all the Painted Ladies! It gets kind of busy because everyone wants to get a good angle to take a picture, but if you go early during the weekday, it’s not as bad.

Magnificently presented houses in a beautiful area of San Francisco, well worth visiting and taking a few photos from a park across the road
