  • Address: Alamo Square - Steiner and Hayes Streets, San Francisco 94117, USA

The finest restaurants in town can't provide views as spectacular as the picnic tables atop Alamo Square Park facing Steiner Street's Postcard Row, a row of pastel Victorian houses, known as the Painted Ladies. In fact, the lavish gingerbread detailing, look-at-me bay windows, and frosting flourishes that adorn the houses may leave you craving dessert.

This collection of candy-jar colored Victorian houses is one of San Francisco's most famous assets. Though many exist throughout the city, this is where you’ll find the greatest concentration of these restored gems. At the corner of Fulton and Steiner streets, in Alamo Square, you can see the crisp edges of the Financial District skyscrapers behind a row of Victorians - it's one of the most famous views of San Francisco. You can even see City Hall.

Practical Info

The Painted Ladies line Steiner Street across from Alamo Square, in the Lower Haight neighborhood. The area is accessible by bus and streetcar, and a few blocks away from Golden Gate Park. Lots of quality cheap eats and bars are nearby.
