The highlight of Universal Studios Hollywood is the studio tour. It's a 45 minute ride through sets, mini towns, movie memorabilia and plenty of fun facts along the way. For thrill seekers, this is not the place for you. Unlike Universal in Orlando, most rides...More

Hollywood or Downtown LA? (31 Replies)
We're coming for 3 days 18-21 Dec. Want to see Universal Studios/Hollywood Walk of Fame/Grauman etc. but have tckts to see basketball game at StaplesCentre. Should we stay Downtown and travel to Hollywood each day or stay in Hollywood & take one-off trip to Staples Centre? Based on yr answer, need a hotel. Either 3 of us in one room (2 queens & 1 roll away) or two rooms but budget is $400-$450 for 3 days. We have a car. Do you envisage being able to drive around for sightseeing,...More

Thanksgiving day at Universal Studios Hollywood. (2 Replies)
We are going to be in L.A. over the week of thanksgiving. We are trying to plan what activities we are going to be doing each day. When I booked the holiday I totally forgot that the week is thanksgiving so I kinda goofed on that as I don't like going to these places during very busy times. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows about or has been to Universal Studios on Thanksgiving day. I am wondering if it is insane and we should stay away. I can't seem to find information specifically...More

I'd be interested in the answer to this question as well, generally, but don't most Americans spend Thanksgiving at home with family stuffing themselves with food and watching football? Therefore making somewhere like a theme park less busy than usual?

So confused. I am planning a family trip for next year. Family of 5- kids will be 11, 15 and 17. Definitely want to do L.A.- Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood etc but don't know what else to add on. We would have about 10- 12 days before flying to Hawaii for a week. Unsure whether to add one city- San Fran; Las Vegas or San Diego/ Tijuana day visit. We like to do busy things- theme parks, shopping etc rather than relaxing on a beach (save that for Hawaii). Not sure whether to hire a...More

Hi With such a limited period of time, I recommend not choosing too many places. You already have two on your list: Los Angeles and Anaheim (the city where Disneyland is located.) If you're visiting Disneyland & California Adventure with the popular 3 Day ParkHopper ticket, that's more time in Anaheim. Las Vegas is possible with kids, but it's not a family-centric vacation destination. The Top Questions on the right side of the page has oodles of information for visitors....More
