SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco officials have banned tour buses in a neighborhood that has become a major tourist draw for a set of Victorian homes featured in the opening credits to the television show, "Full House."

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the city's Municipal Transportation Agency voted 5-0 on Tuesday to ban the buses from a 25-square-block area around and including Alamo Square Park. The park is across the street from some of the most colorful, iconic examples of homes referred to as "Painted Ladies."

It also provides views of downtown San Francisco.

Residents have complained that the buses - estimated at more than 50 a day during the peak season - double-park, block driveways and sideswipe parked cars.

Tour bus operators say the city is making itself less attractive to tourists.
