    Not as colourful as expected. But beautiful location and nice park.

    You need to walk up the hill in the park to get a good view. So many tourists just check then out from the sidewalk on Steiner.

    These lovely houses are exactly alike and painted the different colors. They are Victorian based people actually lived there. There perfectly aligned. It was famous for the "full house" intro

    Very anticlimactic... The park is being renovated, so there are so many tourists trying to get their picture in!!! Plus the bright colour of the houses are not as pronounced as thought

    "Painted ladies" is a term in American architecture used for Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings painted in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details.

    If you're going on a sunny day, go in the afternoon. The sun will be facing the houses which makes their colors more pretty.
