Studio Tours and Hollywood Magic
Universal Studios Hollywood is a premier tourist destination when visiting Los Angeles, and on the drive to or from it you can gawk at the elusive HOLLYWOOD sign in the hills. Unlike some of the other amusement parks, Universal Studios can definitely be completed in one full day. There are a number of attractions and rides, including those from the Harry Potter universe; several of the shows replay throughout the day. The World-Famous Studio Tour spotlights the various studios and sets that movies use, revealing some tricks of the trade, as well as glimpses of the many shows that are currently in production.

Me and Spielberg checking out the launch!
I loved the fact that at the red carpet launch of the new Transformers 3D The Ride at Universal Studios the great Steven Spielberg was enamored enough to film the proceedings on his iphone. You are never too old for Universal Studios!
