“January Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We enjoyed the City Walk instead of staying in the Universal parks at night. January wasn't a busy time of year for the parks so we were able to do all we wanted during the day and by about 6pm we went to a few places in the City Walk. We were disappointed that some places advertised weren't even built yet... but we enjoyed Pat O'Brien, the Sushi Fusion, Panda Express and Margaritaville. We don't like dancing or clubs, but there were plenty of options for those who do.

“Fun without the admission price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Analogous to the "Downtown Disney", this area sits between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, featuring many shops, restaurants, two putt-putt courses (way fun), and a multi-screen movie theater w/IMAX. Prices lower than I would imagine given the theme-park location.

“Glad we did this once.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Last minute decision to attend. Recommendation of entering Universal park after 6:00pm; entry was only $5. We arrived at 5:30, and they were to charge $16. The tenant recommended that kill sometime and come back. It was a nice night to walk around and check out all the entertainment. At 9:00 pm they either want a wrist band purchased or cover charge. Pay for the wrist band, if you planning on visiting several different establishments. O'Brien's with the dueling pianos was the best place.
