I wanted to visit The Rose Bowl when I was in town last year. My buddy said I needed to wait until Sunday so we could attend the monthly flea market. (2nd Sunday of the month?) As I am a big fan of flea markets I agreed to wait til the weekend. SO glad I did! The place is nuts... More

It's kind of like Pebble Beach here. Whether or not you appreciate the sports played at this venue, it's difficult to deny the amazing beauty of the place. I got to take a tour of the Rose Bowl. I heard they are ending soon. But we went on the field, in the press box, luxury suites and locker rooms. Just... More

Pretty park area in front of the stadium to enjoy a walk... or a nap in the California shade. Check the tour schedule - they're only offered Thursday-Sunday which was disappointing. But... that gave us time to follow the Rose Parade route, which was very beautiful. I wish I had been able to march on a freeway in my marching... More

If you like history and legendary stadium this is a stadium for you! I have been to the stadium few times for a Rose bowl game and Nebraska vs UCLA game. Going to a road game you never know how the fans are going to treat. For the majority of the fans were Nebraska, so that could be why. overall... More

Most people go to the Rose Bowl for football games, which makes sense. Those are great. During the off season, the Rose Bowl gives free tours where you can go into the press box, to the field (not on it), in the locker rooms. Being a guest inside gives a different feel, and greater appreciation for the place.

The Rose Bowl Stadium and surrounding land is an athletes heaven! Besides firwork shows, concerts and classic world class soccer and football games inside there are great things happening in the surrounding fields, parking lots and streets outside. Today I observed a gigantic snowboard ramp & jump. The Amazing Race started in the parking lot which is also known for... More

First time here - went with friends - bought tickets on stub hub, luckily places on the Oregon side. Really interesting stadium, almost 100 years old, some upgrades, but old school (no seats, only benches). They do have some upgrades and while the bathrooms were a problem, they apparently added a lot more capacity. We enjoyed the game and I... More

I had the opportunity to join my Alumni group this year at the Rose Bowl. Getting into the stadium was a pain so be sure to get your drinks, food and potty break done before you stand in line because it is very slow moving to make it thru the gates. Arrive early. Once inside you have to wait again... More
