Universal CityWalk is a strip mall leading to the amusement park. It has popular, recognizable stores and restaurants you can browse. The stores are big and flashy which makes you feel like you're in a real-life commercial. There is also a movie theater where you can see the latest movies. You don't have to have a ticket to Universal Studios to access the city walk but you do need to pay for parking which can be expensive. It's an entertaining experience and is fun to do on a random day for leisure.
