Lucy Places to Visit

One of the highlights of the Universal Studio Tour is the Lucy Tribute, which opened in 1991 and showcases treasures from Lucy's personal estate.

Included in the tribute are costumes, sheet music, scrapbooks, photographs, and awards. Video screens show segments of I Love Lucy and video tapes made especially for the Tribute. Also included are an interactive I Love Lucy Trivia Game, plus recreations of the Ricardo apartment and a room in Lucy's real-life Beverly Hills home.

Across the street from the Tribute is Lucy's Boutique, a gift shop specializing in all varieties of Lucy merchandise and memorabilia.

No visit to the Universal City Lucy Tribute would be complete without saying hello to Suzanne LaRusch, who is often on hand appearing as Lucy Ricardo.

A similar Lucy Tribute has been created at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Included are many of the same types of displays. The tribute includes its own gift shop area.

Universal Orlando is home to Desi impressionist Adrian Israel, who is often on hand for special photos with the fans.
