How many things can be crammed into a fake city space? I do have to give them credit...if you can think it, you can buy it here. With restaurants and shops lining both sides of the sidewalk, it's easy to spend everything you bring here. If you want pizza, they have it. If you want steak, they have it. If... More

Kind of a Universal Studios trap. It is an interesting spot for out of towners. It does get pretty busy, parking is a bit steep, the restaurants are cliche of a Hollywood type atmosphere. It is an interesting spot to spend an hour or 2 checking things out, but overall, not impressed. Limit your time there to avoid the droves... More

be prepared to walk behind and around tourists. Living in LA, I avoid Citywalk -- they have a nice theater and the only Element Store around, so other than actually going to Universal I stay away. The shopping can be done anywhere else- same goes for the restaurants. We ate at Hard Rock for the first time and it was... More

Expensive shops, not much night life or outdoor activities, Johnny Rocket's food and service was great.

Citywalk is a great place to visit before and after a day at Universal Studios. They have lots of shops and restaurants along the walk, and also a water play area for small kids. During our recent visit to Universal Studios, we came out of the park to eat lunch (to avoid the long lines at the food stands inside... More

It is a very nice place to walk and eat and maybe buy some souvenirs, take photos and get a comic painting for yourself. But keep in mind that it is somewhat expensive which is understood since it is a touristic place.

If you are already at Universal, then worth poking around for some touristy stuff. However, not much there. Parking is $10 after 3 p.m. if you just want to go walk around. Best thing there is IFly, indoor skydiving. Pretty expensive, check their website for specials.

Came here for the evening after a day at universal studios. It is an outdoor mall that goes in a loop, with more eateries upstairs. We opted for Bubba Gump Shrimp Co which was delicious but was quite a wait. Mall wasn't as big as I expected and the shops were ok - a few of the big chains like... More

There is nothing special about this place at all. The stores are nothing out of this world, the restaurants or fast paced and services generally poor, long waits and not much to do. It is basically a shopping mall with lots of neon lights attached to a huge tourist attraction! But what about walking around? You can pay the half... More

Lots of shopping...hard not to spend money with kids around....fun to walk and have dinner. Most restaurants didn't have long waits.
