Get to know the Alamo square in San Francisco
This area is probably one of the most photographed areas in San Francisco. The picturesque row of Victorian houses and the steep road, next to this beautiful public square, are mostly known to the world from the opening moments of the American sitcom Full House.
When visiting Alamo Square, you should take into consideration that according to locals this is the windiest area in the city. However, many of San Francisco tourist attractions are close by, and the location of the square on top of the hill also offers an amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Transamerica Pyramid and other famous attractions of the city. So it might be a bit windy, but it sure is worth it!
