Relax in Alamo Park with the Iconic Painted Ladies

Added by Laura Hill

Enjoy a relaxing park in the heart of the city by the bay.

If you’re ever in San Francisco, you’ll definitely want to spend a bit of time in Alamo Square gazing at these stellar examples of San Francisco history.  

This is a beautiful and popular green space, where you have uninterrupted views of the iconic Painted Ladies.  The Painted Ladies are row of 6 Victorian homes, and are a frequent stop on San Francisco tour bus routes.  

They’re colorfully adorned, and if you appreciate architecture, they are a spectacular example of that period’s design.

Alamo Square is also a fabulous place to bring a picnic lunch and spend a sunny summer day!

Location: 710–720 Steiner Street, San Francisco, CA
