If you love Victorian houses, Alamo Square is the best place to find the Victorian Houses. There are so many beatiful houses with different Victorian styles and color.
Okay, if the Golden Gate Bridge is the most photographed image in San Francisco, this has to be second. This famous row of Victorian houses at Alamo Square is also known as the "Painted Ladies."
These Victorian Houses are a symbol of San Franciscan architecture. On giving us this tour, I remember Uncle Dick saying that if you want a house here, "Open your wallet...wide."
you can find the painted ladies on the postcards here but i saw other painted ladies in the area who looked nicer.
see travelogue for more pictures
You probably have already seen this famous view of SF...on television, on postcard...but nothing is better than to see it yourself! So go to Alamo Square to enjoy it as long as you want!
There is a house in San Francisco that is a museum, a model of what a Victorian house was like about a hundred years ago. Inside and out, of course!
