The Backlot Tramway Tour of actual stage sets for famous movies is one of the
best methods for getting an introduction into the industry. For
those who don't enjoy tours but just need to stay with the group or family,
you can spend your day around the piano bar of a CityWalk restaurant.
CityWalk is the free entertainment dining & shopping district where guests must pass to enter the theme park. Many tourists who don't have time to see the themed Universal Studios attraction go to CityWalk for dining, movies, and many free concerts and events in the plaza. Top musical acts have appeared in free performances at CityWalk, so it is actually an attraction unto itself.
Universal Studios Hollywood is worth visiting, especially since the public spends so much time in front of televisions watching the results of the countless productions that actually can fool children and adults into believing the fantasy is real. Behind the scenes tours provide a small glimpse into the cement, factory looking buildings where illusion comes to life. It's a great ride with some entertaining floods and crashes along the way. Get on board!
