Universal City Walk
This fun area is located in Universal Studios and connects all the Universal City attractions. Universal City Walk opened in 1993 and is an open-air street featuring retail stores, movies, bars and restaurants for every taste. The Universal City cinemas show all the latest movies. Credit cards acceptance vary by store.
Since L.A. doesn't have a center and no real downtown to speak of, what you come across are these type of things: manufactured shopping/dining "destinations." This is basically an open air shopping mall. It amazes me that so many people go here just to walk around, look in stores, grab some food and catch a movie. What's really annoying is they charge $12 to park! So you're out $12 before you even have a chance to shop. You can apply $5 from the parking to a movie ticket, if you're going to see a movie. Otherwise, this is like Macy's charging a cover at the door just to get in the store! You can get here by subway (red line) and take the free shuttle up to Universal, but most Angelenos frown upon public transportation. Oh yea, Universal Studios is attached to this mall.
Lot's of fun for the entire family. The kids had a blast getting soaked in the shooting fountain. I highly suggest you take their swim trunks or they'll jump in with their clothes on. I love all the shopping, lots fun and zanny novelty items to choose from and it is a superb place to go out at night and have a wonderful dinner.
This place was great. Everything was located closely together. Fun shops and fun restaurants. We tried the Wausabi Shushi ... it was fabulous. Wolfgang Puck was average.
There were street performers that were very talented and entertaining. The atomosphere was high energy and is beautifully lit up a night.
This is a great place to see stores that you would normally not see in your hometown. Great speciality shops and awesome restaurants.
It's a shame that the theme park was not as nice as the shopping area.
I liked this place almost as much as Downtown Disney.
Parking is a little pricey and there's no validation available unless you see a movie.
We love Citywalk! We go alot just to eat & roam around. The big draw is "Howl at the Moon" Piano Bar. Its the best entertainment around.
Take 2 pianos, a drum, guitar, keyboard & lots of talent, & you've got FUN! The guys that play there are very funny & talented. They play all night non-stop. The later the hour the funnier & more rowdier the songs. The waitpeople & bartenders join in, they do a great Timewarp dance! we live out of town, but take special trips just to go to Howl at the Moon!
Universal Studios City Walk is a nice place to go visit if you like shopping at specialty stores and eating at themed restaurants. Comparable to Downtown Disney, except the shops are more unique and varied and the overall atmosphere is a little more grown up than Disney's kid-orented park. For those who like the Irvine Spectrum, Universal City Walk would be recommended. It is not an amusement park, so there are no real rides to speak of except for some virtual reality games at a few stores. You do have to pay to park, though.
