"Ah, the painted ladies" Alamo Square Tip by heryanta

Alamo Square, San Francisco: 70 reviews and 117 photos


Not sure whether this falls into the category of 'Things to do' or just 'Things to see' :)

When I was a boy I used to watch the sitcom "Full House" and they had the row of painted ladies in the opening credits. So when I went to SF for the first time I just had to see it :)

The painted ladies of Alamo square is probably about 1 mile west of the BART station Civic Center. Again there's nothing to do there in itself but you've got a great view of a San Francisco icon - and on a clear day (not in the foggy mornings) you can see the financial district with the iconic transamerica pyramid in the background.

Address: At the intersection of Steiner and Hayes streets.
Directions: About 1 mile West of BART station civic center
