This is located right outside Universal Studios Theme Park. It is just a small collection of tourist, expensive stores and restaurants. We ate in a Chinese Restaurant that was very good, but overpriced. We also bought candy in a store with a great selection, but...More

Seen one mall seen them all, whilst a little more pimped up than our local mall the intent is the same trying to get you to buy stuff you don't really need. I would spend my time at Universal Studios rather than looking at merchandise...More

CityWalk at Universal is a strip of restaurants and shops outside the park that has so much neon happening, you wont even know it is nighttime. Many of the restaurants are large chains that have a branch here.

Many of the great name restaurants like bubba Gump and margarita ville. Located near entrance to theme park. Excellent shopping . Much better than downtown Disney. Great for a night out.

It's got stores, restaurants, movies, night clubs, bars, music, dancing and crowds. Most places are a bit overpriced. Parking is costly. Did I mention the crowds?

No you don't. It's just off to the right of the entrance to the park, you're free to look around and shop there. It's worth it, however Universal was not worth the price IMO.

Welcome to Tripadvisor and the LA forum. This list includes places in Orange County as well as Los Angeles. Before we sort for you, who is your group? Children? Ages? Will you have a rental car? When are you going to be here and for how many nights? This is how much time, roughly, it could take to do the following: The Getty Center is probably 1/2 day. Universal is 6-7 hours, inclusive of City Walk. Disneyland is in Orange County, about an hours' drive away, and folks will do...More
