Universal Studios Hollywood is one of the largest, still-active movie studios in the world, and thanks to its theme park smack dab on its lots, it's also one of Los Angeles' top destinations for families.

The park, which can get very crowded on weekends, offers, among its varied features, a behind-the-scenes studio tour. Other rides and attractions, all based on well-known films or TV shows, run the gamut from tame to fear-inducing; a handful of shows run regularly throughout the day, too. CityWalk, an entertainment complex stretching out from the park's entrance, boasts among its attractions dozens of restaurants, cinemas, and a major concert venue.

Though the park is best for kids elementary-age and older as well as adults, there are offerings for younger ones. And the park's efforts to accommodate families with members of all ages is evident. Changing stations and bathrooms are abundant, and with the "Child Switch" program, an adult can wait with child(ren) in a kid-friendly area, while their partner goes on a ride; then, when the ride is over, the other adult gets his or her turn to ride without needing to wait again in line.

All in all, Universal Studios Hollywood is a lively destination that makes for a fun day or weekend for most families yet isn't as overwhelming as, say, Disneyland. Still, smiles and excited screams can be counted on throughout a visit, as well as, after it's all over, requests to visit again and again.
