One of the most popular tourist attractions in L.A., Universal City Walk is the reason why downtown Burbank didn't get a formerly planned "mini Disneyland park" in the middle of their mall, which would have resembled Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America. Great place for...More

I like stopping in for dinner several times a year. One can do that without buying entry to the park. When I do go to the park I like to find a discounted "annual pass" and go a few times each year.

Great for chain restaurants and gimmicky sugar ladened food but otherwise there’s little reason to visit

It gets busy but that’s because it’s so good. We stayed in the Hilton about 5 minutes away for a few nights and city walk has lots of places to eat so we were here most nights. Bubba gump was always great!

Capitalism at its best. You want to go into every store, you pick up stuff and think "this is great" but then consider that you really have no use for it. But great fun to look. Upper end resturants had good food and fun... but...More

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
