A must see!

You can't go to San Francisco and not see what most people know as the Full House house. There are beautiful!

Went for walk from UN plaza to painted ladies. It is five houses in Victorian architectures. Each house is painted in own colour and there are minor differences in external details.

To get here. Cute to see if you're in the neighbourhood, but there are some incredibly beautiful homes around the city. It's the 'houses plus city' backdrop that makes it picturesque so best on a sunny day.

Visited in Nov 1, So the weather wasn't the best, However it really is an iconic view and worth the trip to see. The skyline in the background of the houses makes for a great photo opp. There is a few too many tourists having picnics around the park, But that is to be expected as it is an attraction.... More

The Painted Ladies are just in a normal neighborhood in San Francisco. Use Uber or walk to get there; the hills are tough, but there are park benches in Alamo Square to rest and enjoy the view of the homes, and of the city beyond.

This is a quick stop on a tour of San Francisco. The park beside the houses is currently undergoing renovations so there isn't much green space where to sit and enjoy the view. There is a nice view of the city beyond the Painted Ladies. The houses are definitely cute and picturesque and worth a quick stop.

Iconic local attraction. The park across the street is temporarily closed which would have made for some great photos. Plenty of tourists snapping pics , even going onto the steps of these homes. I don't recommend it, people actually live in these homes. Not much else in the area .

My boys and I had just started watching the new fuller house on Netflix, so while in San Fran I knew this would be fun to see. The park across the street was under construction so it was tough to find parking and there were no bathrooms to use (check progress before going). It's not a long activity by Amy... More

We thought this was a "must see" in San Franciso. It is not. Pictures make the Painted Ladies look like they are across from a huge park when the park is really small. Houses looked nice, but not really that special

We rented a car on a business trip and specifically drove past the painted ladies. Really enjoyed seeing these old houses being taken care of so well!

Thank Abbey Q
