During your stay at Holiday Inn® Burbank-Media Center you absolutely must try to pencil in a day to spend at Universal Studios Hollywood. Originally nothing more than an interesting studio tour, this place has morphed into a popular theme park. Of course, you can still take that iconic studio tour, but visiting now is a full day of adventure. Universal Studios Hollywood puts you into some of your favorite movies. It also offers a nice selection of fantastic shops and restaurants.
Universal City was opened by Carl Laemmle on March 14, 1915. For only a nickel, visitors could tour the studio and this price included lunch. At the time, the attraction was in a rural farm area, so you could even buy produce while you were there. In 1930, the tours had to be canceled due to the introduction of sound films.
In 1962, Music Corporate of America took over and suggested starting a new tour to increase profits, and in 1964 one was started. It took guests through sets and dressing rooms, and even allowed peeks at active production. Through the years it has turned into an amazing theme park.Details
