Dining, Shopping, & Entertainment – Universal CityWalk has it All!!


Dining, Shopping, & Entertainment – Universal CityWalk has it All!!

Universal Orlando really had so much more to offer than I ever expected. I think we have all heard about the amazing theme park, thrill rides, and cool events ( check out all the fun we had the Universal Orlando Mardi Gras Celebration). A few of us were familiar with Universal Orlando Resorts too. But did you know, there is an entirely separate entertainment, shopping and dining destination to enjoy too?! Universal CityWalk was one location my girlfriends and I had to check out! Also a big thanks to Universal Studios Resorts &  The CowFish for providing an amazing dining experience in both quality food and service as part of our #UORGirlsGetaway!

On our first night out, we dined at The CowFish, a sushi-burger bar. “Burgushi” as its called here is a one of a kind dining experience! The Cowfish aims to offer something for the entire family. Between everyone in our group sharing, we got to enjoy a bite of practically everything! Generous appetizers for sharing,entree-sized salads, homemade desserts and a fun kid’s menu. With all the options I just couldn’t make up my mind. If you are like me, order a bento box to sample a mini-burger along with your choice of sushi roll and three side items!Cowfish Collage

Another evening we visited Antojitos at Citywalk, a Mexican dining experience! This restaurant features great drinks, a mariachi band, and complimentary guacamole made right at your table! On your way out don’t miss an opportunity to get your picture taken with the vintage VW bus!

Entertainment & Nightlife

The entertainment options at CityWalk are just as plentiful. Live karaoke, performances by Blue Man Group, a movie theater, awesome mini-golf are just a few of the nightlife options available on your visit.21_Blue Man Group Show

The girls and I had a LOT of fun at Rising Star karaoke. Here  you get to sing with a live band and backup singers! Even though I do not ever wish to hold a microphone, this was such great karaoke. Everyone who went was having a great time!

You can’t come home from a fabulous vacation without a few souvenirs right? Lucky for you, there is also no shortage of fantastic shopping available at CityWalk either.

shopping at CityWalk

Fossil, Fresh Produce, P!Q, Element, Universal Studios Store, NBA Store, and many, many more to choose from. You can also go home with a tattoo if that’s your thing.( I can’t say the idea of getting tattoos on the girls trip wasn’t brought up – ha!) We decided visiting a few more shops for the kids was better for us on this trip. We had a lot of fun goofing off and finding unique gift items to bring home. Shopping Collage

CityWalk was such a fun part of our trip! It is something I wouldn’t have known to plan time for but I’m so glad we got to experience it. And now that you know your CityWalk experience will be AMAZING!
