  • So much to see and do on this walkway. Just a fun atmosphere of music, people, and kids. Plenty of places to eat and drink. People watching fun too.

  • City walk is awesome for many walks (no pun) of people. It’s got all the touristy stuff. Kids and family. It’s got dining and shopping and even a couple places for nightlife. And if you’re staying near by or overnight there then of course there’s universal studios which is great for everyone. Just one knock but this goes with ANYTHING touristy. The prices can build up on you VERY fast. If they can charge you for it. They will. From parking to lockers to bags and anything else that should be free due to the entry fees alone. So if you have a bundle of disposable income! I highly recommend both city walk and universal!
  • Please note that Universal CityWalk Hollywood is not Universal Studios Hollywood. Universal CityWalk Hollywood is a mall that you walk through prior to getting to the entrance to Universal CityWalk Hollywood. Phew, now that we have that out of the way we can move on to the review. Universal CityWalk Hollywood has much to offer those who are wanting to have many options for dining. There are also several options for shopping. Universal CityWalk Hollywood treats your eyes with lots of visuals. I feel as if it's almost like a Vegas experience without the gambling as you walk down the street. The mall is very clean and you will feel very safe. I was visiting during evening hours and lines do form. You will want to arrive earlier to beat those lines or make reservations where and when applicable. If you are going to do any shopping prior to visiting Universal Studios Hollywood, there are lockers you can rent to use to store your goodies. If you're looking for a fun safe place to enjoy dining with lots of options, this is definitely a go. I highly recommend this mall.
