Covering an impressive three-block footprint, LA’s Universal CityWalk serves up a high-energy, Hollywood-inspired experience. Featuring a smorgasbord of restaurants, a trio of pulsing nightclubs, a myriad of retail stores and a state of the art IMAX theatre, it’s LA’s favourite place to shop, dine and play.
The dazzling 5 Towers interactive outdoor concert venue anchors the district, and never fails to wow visitors with its supersonic sound system and luminous display of more than 5,000 LED lights. For the ultimate Universal CityWalk experience, visitors should plan their trip around a 5 Towers live music show.
Located directly adjacent to Universal Studios Hollywood, the CityWalk promenade is easy to access for guests staying in or around the resort. Metro trains and buses service the area, with parking also available for those arriving by car.
Opened in 1993, the CityWalk was designed to thrill guests from the moment they step foot in the Universal vicinity. In 2000 it underwent a billion-dollar expansion, which saw the addition of new restaurants, stores and attractions. For visitors that are familiar with CityWalk Orlando, LA’s instalment is still worth a trip. While Florida’s version is ultra-modern, Universal CityWalk LA stays true to classic Hollywood style.
