Skipping out of the park to explore places to eat is easy, convenient, and fulfilling. We waited until after sunset as the lights, sights and sounds were magnified and spectacular. One doesn't require a pass here as it is entirely open to anyone. We enjoyed our time, got a great meal, and headed back into the park afterward to enjoy... More

We visited the Universal CityWalk on a Saturday night. It was a short drive from Loews Hollywood Hotel (less than 10 minutes). We were able to find parking ($20) nearby and take an elevator to the entrance. The CityWalk is a free, open-air attraction next to Universal Studios. It is very vibrant and energetic! The streets are lined with a... More

My husband and I decided to spend our 42nd anniversary at Universal City walk. There are plenty of shops for shopping for grandchildren. Plenty of places to eat, and this is a great place to sightsee and people watch. I will return ~

This was a bit unimpressive. However, we walked out if the park and were able to get into a restaurant and eat dinner. We were also able to do some shopping done that we didn't get to at the park.

This is a great place to eat (many different restaurant selections) and shop for an afternoon. We enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere and theming of the many different places here.

Even though it's busy, it's a good place to eat, drink and shop away from the hustle of the park; there's even a cinema to catch the latest movies. There is also an outdoor stage, and when we visited it was host to a children dance troupe competition.

If you are looking for something to do but don't want to spend $$ to get into the park you can still visit Universal on the City Walk. Only pay for parking. Be sure to go in the evening because there's lots of entertainment along the way. Restaurants from Pink's Hot Dogs and Subway to Bubba Gumps and Hard Rock... More

Really nice place to visit with family and friends all year long, even if you're a local visitor or a out of state tourist on vacation you won't be disappointed with a variety of good restaurants and shops. If visiting with children your best bet is to visit early during the day before it gets to crowded with teenagers at... More

Sundays on Citywalk is very nice! My son and I walked around, had Blaze Pizza. Checked the toy store out. Definitely Pokemon Go friendly! Lots of Poke Stops and tons of Pokemon. Will come back!
