This is a life-time treat if you are into finding bargains, locating unusual merchandise, strolling through crowds of people on beautiful sunny days, or simply want to do some people watching. Open from 9:00AM-3:00PM the 2nd Sunday of the month, you will have plenty of time to explore (obviously, the later in the day you go the hotter it is).... More

I love the grounds and history of this place. It is one of those very few places that can elicit great feeling, a sense of history, that is bigger than itself, let alone hosts many wonderful events. I have been here to see football, olympic soccer and other sports, fireworks, concerts, car shows, etc. If you can host it in... More

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

There is no better place to spend New Year's Day than in a seat somewhere in this amazing venue. When the sun sets, putting a pink hue on the San Gabriel Mountains, you'll swear, much like Shoeless Joe Jackson in Field of Dreams, that you were in Heaven. I can't speak to what the stadium is like on non-game days,... 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.
