“Busy street!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

Interesting, hot and busy in August but I still enjoyed it because there were plenty of places to sit there! Yeah!! Lots of shops, music, attractions nice atmosphere.
It does get busy in the restaurants and it is a good idea if you're organised to book a meal beforehand. We didn't and still got a nice meal with minimal waiting time really. We ate in a Mexico place and it was lovely.
I loved Universal Studios and was really glad that I visited. You must go of course but if you're my age just take your time and sit down taking everything in.
Enjoy,

“Busy Busy Busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

How many things can be crammed into a fake city space? I do have to give them credit...if you can think it, you can buy it here. With restaurants and shops lining both sides of the sidewalk, it's easy to spend everything you bring here. If you want pizza, they have it. If you want steak, they have it. If you want candy...they have that too. Clothes, foods, drinks, and some of the most interesting looking people and outfits that I have ever encountered filled this place up.

“Pretty Touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Kind of a Universal Studios trap. It is an interesting spot for out of towners. It does get pretty busy, parking is a bit steep, the restaurants are cliche of a Hollywood type atmosphere. It is an interesting spot to spend an hour or 2 checking things out, but overall, not impressed. Limit your time there to avoid the droves of teens going to watch movies and all the tourists.

“tourists”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

be prepared to walk behind and around tourists. Living in LA, I avoid Citywalk -- they have a nice theater and the only Element Store around, so other than actually going to Universal I stay away. The shopping can be done anywhere else- same goes for the restaurants. We ate at Hard Rock for the first time and it was awful.
Expensive (pay for parking and food is overpriced) and crowded,especially on the weekends.
