Universal Studios Hollywood

 (2848.6 mi)

Little kids and big kids alike love Universal Studios Hollywood! Check out kid-friendly attractions like Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and Super Silly Fun Land, or have some pulse-pounding fun on Jurassic Park the Ride and King Kong 360 3-D. And no visit to Universal Studios is complete without a trip to Diagon Alley and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, or Super Nintendo World! Keep your eyes peeled for character sightings of Dora, Sponge Bob, Scooby Doo, The Simpsons and others. Families can also enjoy great dining, shopping, and entertainment both in the park and at CityWalk.


As a Harry Potter fan I prefer the Universal Studios in Florida, since it has two Harry Potter lands (rather than the single one in Hollywood), but this is still a fun destination for families visiting LA, as well as locals.

Went there as a kid and loved it! I got picked to "ride" the bike from ET. They projected me flying on the big screen. It was the coolest thing ever as a 10yo kid.
