Universal Studios Hollywood is a theme park based on popular movie attractions including Harry Potter, King Kong, Transformers, and many more.
Universal CityWalk is a shopping and entertainment experience featuring live music, dining, nightlife, and even indoor skydiving!
Universal Pictures and Universal Studios are still active locations for shooting film and television, so it’s not uncommon to catch a sneak peek into the next blockbuster hit, or to find yourself rubbing elbows with your favorite superstars.
Because the entirety of Universal City is the property of Universal Studios, there are no residential areas or schools. However, Universal City is only 2.7 miles and about 14 minutes away from Studio City, an upscale community recognized for housing superstars. Although there are no houses or schools, there is public transportation via the Rapid Transit Station on Metro Rail’s Redline with service to Universal Studios Hollywood and CityWalk. Additionally, there are several hotels within the area for out-of-town visitors.
Universal City is a testament to the success of Universal Pictures, Universal Studios, and Universal CityWalk in entertaining the masses with film production, props, special effects, and an unlimited playground for the imagination.
