Giant Guitar along the Citywalk. Universal CityWalk Freakish Facades

It's just unbelievable how cool a shopping experience this is. There is so much crammed into these 2 blocks. Truly a feast for the eyes, even if you don't buy a thing. We had lunch at the Hard Rock cafe which was terrific. I love socks, and we shopped at the LA Sock Market, where they had over 3,000 pairs of socks to pick from. Lots of photo ops as well, like King Kong hanging over the street. If you are anywhere in the neighborhood make the effort to stop - you won't be sorry.

We include the Universal CityWalk for its profusion of oversized statuary and loud attempts to lure visitors inside to buy things.
