We went to the City Walk the day after Universal Studios and Shopped for more souvenirs and other things. Everyone was friendly and it was a lot of fun! There are plenty of places to get food and drinks. The only downside is that there aren't many places to sit. That's rough when you're a little tired, but want to... More

The open access area of Universal Studios with shops, restaurants, live music and entertainment on that’s suitable for all ages. This is Universals answer to Downtown Disney and its done a little better from my POV. Has a really nice atmosphere and plenty of places to get some reasonable food and drink. Somehow reminded me of Pier 39 in San... More

This was our 'go-to' place for dinner most nights during our 7-night honeymoon, as the hotel we were staying at had a free trolley service directly to Citywalk. We had a great time walking around and trying the different places to eat (Bubba Gump's was a definite highlight!). Popcornopolis and Pinkies are also a must try!

Count at least a full day for Universal studios and the City Walk- ideally, start with the studios, early, and then end with the cityWalk, where you can indulge yourself in a movie, some shopping and some (good) food.

Touristy, pricy, but fun. Restaurants are over priced with ok food, it has a great theater, some fun shops, and the best Carmel apples around. I go here when I visit just for fun.

This is a great place to spend the afternoon/night if you have just left universal studios but it's also somewhere you would go to spend a few hours even if you haven't gone to the theme park. There are so many shops, restaurants etc. and the atmosphere is great.

What a cute tourist trap! Lots of stores and eateries. The kids brought their swimsuits and had a blast in the water sprayers. We got to see a street performer and ate at Bubba Gump shrimp Factory. Very good
