Universal CityWalk is just outside the park’s entrance, and it’s an attraction unto itself, especially for nightlife. Its 30-plus eateries include Wolfgang Puck Bistro, Hard Rock Cafe, Buca di Beppo, Saddle Ranch Chop House and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Shops featuring everything from shoes to sports apparel to sugar (parents, beware: It’Sugar is a high-risk area). For hip bowlers of all ages, Jillian’s Hi Life Lanes rolls to rock music in a cozy and sleek space amid neon lights. For laughs, head to Jon Lovitz Comedy Club or to piano bar Howl at the Moon. For more of a whole-body experience, indoor skydiving — for ages 3 years and up — can be had at iFly Hollywood. The Gibson Ampitheatre is one of California’s largest indoor concert venues, and its roster includes world-class musicians of all genres and major awards shows.
