Well after another harrowing drive navigating US roads and freeways, we arrived at Universal Studios. The place is massive. First we took a studio tour and we visited Wisteria Lane and the Bates Motel where they filmed Physco. We saw our first squirrel travelling through the lot. Now it was time to face the park itself. We had purchased a front of line pass which enabled us to skip queues everywhere and stay behind at some of the shows to see what happens backstage and meet some of the actors. This is definitely worthwhile. Meet several characters around the park including Dracula, Lucy Arnez, Blues Bros etc.
After a long day we headed to the city walk at the Studios where we went to the Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood to have dinner. The meal sizes are enormous.
On return to our hotel we went for an evening walk along the Santa Monica Pier.
