Universal Studios Hollywood
Look forward to an action-packed day out at Universal Studios Hollywood, a must-visit on your
holiday to Los Angeles. An incredible day out for the whole family, you’re sure to have lots of fun exploring the movie-themed rides.
Found in Universal City to the north of central LA, you can book a shuttle from your hotel, or it’s easy to get to the park with public transport. Take the Metro rail service to the Universal City Red Line station or the bus to the Universal City bus station, then walk to the park or over the pedestrian bridge to the free Universal Studios shuttle.
However you get there, you’re bound to be excited as you set foot inside one of the world’s most popular theme parks, whether you want to jump on a bike to the stars with E.T. or go on the Jurassic Park river adventure.
See the Terminator and King Kong come to life in 3D, or visit Krustyland with the Simpsons. If you have little ones, take them to the incredible Shrek 4D before moving on to the Blast Zone where they can meet the Rugrats and get soaked by the water dump. And of course, you won’t want to miss the popular Harry Potter ride, or the Studio Tour.
As you make your way through the park, keep your eyes open for famous characters like SpongeBob SquarePants, who’ll be more than happy to pose for photos with the kids. Then when you get
hungry, there are lots of opportunities to grab a bite, whether you want a quick hot dog and
doughnut, or a bigger meal.
After your visit to Universal Studios Hollywood, head to Venice Beach for some late-afternoon sun, and wait for the sunset to light up the sky.
