  • Great example of San Francisco architecture and fun to see if you watch the TV show Full House. These homes are in the open shot of the show.  more »
  • Great city landmark with a park and good view. Parking is difficult so it is best to take the BART or public transportation.  more »
  • It is highly recommended to visit it since you can see a large part of San Francisco, but basically its typical houses on a steep Street.
