“Should Have Skipped It”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We had a free evening so we decided to check out the Universal CityWalk. After 3 p.m., parking is "only" $10.00. I'm not used to paying to park whenever I go shopping or out for dinner so I didn't really care for it. But we went anyway thinking that it would give us something to do and maybe provide some entertainment for the evening. There are shops and restaurants there along with a movie theater. If there was more, we missed it. So we paid to park so that we could spend money. We ended up eating there and then went back to the hotel. Wish we would have skipped it. (My fault - I should have researched it better.)

“Great if at Universal, otherwise, skip!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Nothing to say bad about this, except its basically the entrance to Universal Studios. So expect to pay a premium for everything and anything here. Otherwise, cant complain. Its a big shiny tourist attraction in itself. A fun place to go and walk and/or people watch.

“Nothing really exciting to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

This place was a bit of a let-down. It's over-rated on trip advisor. I was expecting something extraordinary. Instead, I found a small strip of a "city walk" that would be better described as a flashy mall with extra light and sound. Would have better spent my time visiting other attractions.

“CityWalk Rocks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

CityWalk has sit down & fast food restaurants, shopping, multi-plex movie theatre, skydiving, more! It was fun to spend time there. It's great if you're staying at the hotels nearby and hitting Universal by day & CityWalk at night. We enjoyed the Hard Rock Cafe. One of the large Hard Rocks on two levels & with good food & service. The much hyped Saddle Ranch was just O.K. in both the service and the food departments. CityWalk was fun & we will be back!
