Universal Citywalk, Los Angeles
Well the locals call the city walk something else, it rhymes with city and starts with an 's'. In any event, if you want to buy fast food quality food and all kinds of merchandise (junk) you don't need at high prices, then by all means shop away.
Unique Suggestions: Bring your own food. Don't buy any thing. Go to other shopping areas in the city, like the Venus Beach area and buy similar things there for a much lower price.
It is just a mall. You can find malls in every city. Yet it is the most over billed, over hyped mall in the world. It just plain sucks, but don't tell that to most locals, for whatever reason too many people who live here think it's cool.
Unique Suggestions: If you have to do the tourist trap thing, try the Santa Monica Pier, even though that also sucks.
