Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Studios HollywoodUniversal Studios Hollywood is the longest running still active movie studios in the world. If you are lucky on your visiting day you will see crews filming some of the new movies or your favorite TV shows.

The park has three distinct sections: Upper Lot; Lower Lot and the Studio Tour. I recommend that you start with the tour to get acquainted with the park and to see the main reason for its existence: Making movies.

Downtown Disney

Downtown Disney district sits in between Disneyland, California Adventure and Disneyland hotel. The area is full of entertainment venues and restaurants.

Downtown DisneyThe best things are free at Downtown Disney: You can stroll around, enjoy the scenery or listen to street performers. At around 9:30 PM you can catch the great fireworks display right from the district. The fireworks are launched above the sleeping beauty castle, but very prominent from several locations in the district.

If you feel like a big spender, you can indulge yourself with fine dining and happening shows.
