Alamo Square is beautiful and pristine, and with the backdrop of the Painted Ladies, it's even better. Bring a picnic, and you'll find yourself singing the theme song to Full House while gazing upon the famous Painted Ladies!Recommended for:

A parks a park a parks a park and this is one of the city's most underrated and symbolic (Full House? Painted Ladies?). Alamo Square is right in the center of the city and on the "less-foggy" side of the city. Looking West at sundown provides an excellent sunset. Looking East you can see the entire city. Hangout, food, dogs, pretty girls, and soft grass.Recommended for:

This is the ultimate frugal hipster weekend hangout. Bring some wine, cheese, a guitar and a blanket and spend the afternoon enjoying the sun (when it's out) and a gorgeous view of the Painted Ladies and the skyline beyond.Recommended for:

the hardest part is finding legal parking... it's tough. once you've found your parking space, stick around and enjoy the view. i always saw the painted ladies on the beginning credits of full house and in the movie sweet november, so i really wanted to visit this place for such a long time and was so happy when i finally made it. it's got a couple of playgrounds for the kids: one for wee ones, one for bigger ones.

Alamo Square is one of my favorite places in the city. Why? For one thing, on a nice and clear day you can see an awesome view of the city skyline from here. Another reason is that it reminds me of the tv show Full House, which I watched a lot as a kid. Just seeing the opening credits and catching a view of Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies always got me excited.Recommended for:

"Trying to find Full House..."
Finally came here yesterday to check out this lovely park. You get a nice view of the city skyline & the Painted Ladies. Cute playground area for little kids to play their little hearts content.
It's definitely a nice park to hangout to relax or have a picnic. :)Recommended for:

Really big park where lots of young people and tourist spend their afternoons, lying on the grass, drinking something. You can enjoy the view of beautiful victorian houses like the Painted Ladies.

This park is famous for the "Painted Ladies" - some famous San Francisco Victorian houses that are brightly painted with a nice view behind. Its a pretty famous shot if you're a photographer, but otherwise there is no reason to come here - you can find beautiful victorians all over the city, and Alamo Square is otherwise unremarkable.

Great park in the city with a nice large off leash part of the park for out furry friends. This is the park from the old TV show Full House so talk about nostalgia. Great views of the city from all angles, a must visit if your new to SF.

I used to live two blocks from this iconic park -- bordered by the infamous Painted Ladies and opening credits of everyone's favorite family "The Tanners."
Here is where I'd sought refuge from my writing deadlines and my exercise-deprived, atrophied legs needed stretching. All it took was the wind whipping up off the bay onto the knolls to put color into my cheeks and the sheer joy of watching dogs emancipated from their leashes to get my groove back. It even has the kitsch factor of being the opening to "Full House," a great conversation piece that inevitably segues to the irony of Bob Saget being one of the filthiest comedians ever, the Olson twins' anorexia, and Dave Goulier the recipient of movie theatre bowchickabow from Alanis Morisette. On frigid summer nights, you can snuggle with a loved one under a blanket with whisky and catch one of their movie nights.

Home of the famous painted ladies, this is where those colorful San Francisco victorian houses are, and if you don't have a picture in front of them then you never actually went to San Francisco. Sure, anyone can photoshop the Golden Gate Bridge in behind them, but to really prove you were there, this landscape shot is a must. Really want to prove that you're a tourist having the must-have Painted Ladies photo shoot? Jump up in the air repeatedly until your photographer confirms that he/she did in fact capture the shot while you were in midair.
