No filter needed in picturesque Alamo Square. Thanks to the “Painted Ladies,” Alamo Square Park always packs a “Full House”. (See what we did there?) Picnics, pooches, and people snagging social media-ready snaps with selfies. Life in Alamo Square centers around its namesake park, and that park – with its playgrounds, tennis courts and spectacular views of the city – offers a haven for locals looking to sprawl out somewhere and while away a sunny afternoon (and for their dogs, who seem happy as can be in the leash-free zone). But it’s also home to four beautiful Victorian homes, the ‘painted ladies,’ made famous due to their appearance in the credits of Full House, and thus it’s a very popular spot for visitors seeking out that perfect, iconic SF shot (don’t worry, though – it’s perfectly acceptable for locals to get in on the fun, too!) Sunsets here are spectacular, thanks to the park’s location up on a hill.
Centered on Alamo Square Park, this quiet hilltop haven has a few tricks up its sleeve; cinematic city views, “Painted Ladies” Victorians, and bustling bars. Whether you’re craving a locally brewed beer, a tasty glass of wine, a craft cocktail, or a stiff shot of whiskey, the Divisadero strip is studded with scores of welcoming watering holes that keep the thirst at bay. Bonus: there are no major hills to climb in the midst of your bar crawling.
Alamo Square has an international fan base thanks to Full-House-famous “Painted Ladies” and their breathtaking backdrop – hi def views of the San Francisco skyline.
