There was so much to see here! my husband and I had a great time exploring the area and we spent a lot of time just wandering, always seeing something new. There is a huge variety in stores and attractions of all kinds, and selection in restaurants. Definitely had a great time, and worth checking out both day and night.... More

With so many neon signs and fancy stores, i felt like i was in a mini vegas! Plenty of amazing restaurants and activities to suit the whole family.

Wonderful open air mall! Lots of popular stores, some I am familiar with, and some new ones...all having their own uniqueness. I visited during the 2014 Holiday and loved the hugh, beautifully decorated Christmas tree. The outdoor concert was nice but I wish the singer would have sang more songs in English. I'll give Universal a break and assume that... More

Though there are many stores and many places to eat here, I never say to myself, "Hey, let's waste time at Citywalk!" Parking is $+/-$16 but there are many offers for a reduced fee with a promotional bundle like with a movie ticket or dinner. There are things to do here, like indoor skydiving, running though water jets or watching... More

Don't expect too much here..ITs not like a ton of fun and we debated whether to come here after dinner, spend $10 parking just to peruse here or not. But we did again but we knew what to expect. ITs good to just walk through it, do some souvenir shopping, see the lights and music at night, drink some Starbucks... More

We came here to go to the Dodgers shop specifically. There are plenty of good shops and chain food outlets. The main problem we had was the $25 we had to pay to park. For a glorified shopping street it felt a bit much! Will be great if you had kids and there are plenty of food photo ops.

We went on a Wednesday night and ate at the Hard Rock as we always do if there is one near where we are. The city walk itself is pretty small. If you've been to the one in Orlando you will probably be disappointed with this one. It nowhere near as cool. Some neat stores and plenty of food options.... More

Our family enjoyed our evenings spent at the CityWalk. We were staying in the Hilton, within walking distance, so we did not have to deal with the parking fees as some people have mentioned. It really is very cool when it's lit up. Lots of food options (we ate at Hard Rock cafe....food was terrible but the atmosphere ROCKS). Worth... More

We were here on Sunday December 21st to celebrate my birthday & Solstice. What a pleasant surprise, it was rather fun. I liked the Popcornopolis (all natural, no GMO & Fresh), the young people in the shops were extremely nice. I didn't like the restaurant (see my review of Samba), they didn't even validate parking. We got a bit lost... More
