A Visitor’s Guide to Studio City

Studio City is a neighborhood in Los Angeles, California centered around the legacy of Hollywood. The city’s name is based on a studio lot established in 1927, now known as CBS Studio Center. Studio City may be less than six square miles, but it packs a lot of things to do, places to visit, and good food to eat. For this reason, we put together some of the top things to do and see on your next visit to Studio City, California.

Universal Studio Tours

Most tours consist of a bus full of people, narrated by a guide as guests peer out windows, quickly passing by all the sights and sounds. Not on the Universal Studio Tours. These tours are interactive and built to make you feel like a character in an action sequence during some of your favorite movie moments. These action-packed tours are fun for all ages and certainly a can’t-miss attraction for movie buffs.

Universal CityWalk

One of the most popular parts of Studio City is the Universal CityWalk. This area features one of the best movie experiences anywhere: a 7-story IMAX with LASER theater. If you’re ready for a cinema experience unlike any other you’ve been to in the states, plan a trip to the Universal IMAX.

Studio City Farmers Market

On Sunday mornings, head over to the Studio City Farmers Market. It’s not your typical farmer’s market, but more of an interactive experience. In addition to finding SoCal’s freshly picked produce, visitors can ride a train or a pony, check out a petting zoo, or have their faces painted.

Coldwater Canyon Park

No matter the time of year, Coldwater Canyon Park is a great place to spend the day in the pristine Los Angeles weather. A walk in this park offers breathtaking views and plenty of Instagrammable viewpoints.

The Dinner Detective

Consider yourself a super sleuth? The Dinner Detective located in Studio City takes murder mystery to a whole new level. In fact, you might even be the killer. Guests dine while engaging in an interactive mystery game where guests themselves are key characters. 

Décor Art Galleries

The Décor Art Galleries offer an extraordinary collection of historic Hollywood photos. It’s a fantastic place to visit to buy a piece of art that commemorates the bygone days of Old Hollywood.

 North Valleyheart Riverwalk

If you need some nature to replenish your soul, consider walking through the North Valleyheart Riverwalk. It’s one of the most environmentally friendly parks in the country, and you’ll be amazed at the effort the community goes through to keep it green and beautiful. The main walking path offers solitude shaded by native plants and shrubs – ideal for a light run, dog walk, or stroll in the warm California sun.

While you’re in Studio City, if part of your day consists of enjoying high-quality cannabis products, don’t bother searching for a “dispensary near me”. Head directly to WHTC.
