Universal Studios City-walks in Hollywood, California, and Orlando, Florida, are free access areas of shopping, dining and entertainment, based around the attractions of Universal Studios theme parks.
From the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. to the Hard Rock Cafe, City-walk has a place for everyone. Orlando’s NASCAR Sports Grille and Pat O’Brien’s NBA City satisfy the sports fans, while Hollywood has Bucca di Beppo and Wolfgang Puck. Both also have quick dining areas for families running between events and movies.
Along with the Universal Studios Store, try the dozens of other eclectic shops and outlets such as the Endangered Species Store, Fossil or Things From Another World.
Both City-walks have cinemas with more than 18 theaters, all with stadium seating. Check out the IMAX at Hollywood, and look for special dinner and a movie deals at both parks.
Must See Entertainment
In Florida, the must-see show is the Blue Man Group at its theater near the Hard Rock Cafe. California’s iFly Hollywood offers indoor skydiving. Both parks have live concerts and fireworks.
Tips for Travelers
While vacationing in California or Florida, try to hit the City-walk several nights for dinner and shows. Because it isn’t a theme park with high admission prices, it’s always better to fit in events into the schedule and come back other nights.
