So much history there it was a great experience being there to watch the BYU / UCLA Football game. Seating was a little tight but was not to bad. The parking on the stadium grounds is filled first and then on the golf course parking. Which is not that bad if you get there early a short walk required. You... More

I've attended many UCLA football games over the years. Be prepared with a hat and sunblock if you attend a day game. Many food vendors with a wide variety of treats! Getting out of the parking lot at the end of an event can be a pain - go with a group of friends in a motor home, as you... More

This is a fantastic location for concerts! Very open and spacious and plenty of parking, Not too far from Raymond and Colorado Blvd.

So many magical moments have happened here that while I was in LA, I had to stop by and visit it for myself! One day, I hope to be able to catch some kind of football game here!

Loved the variety of goods being sold by interesting people; there was some new merchandise, also. Parking was easy; food and drink available.

I've been here a few times. I've hiked around here, watched the fireworks on 4th of July, and went to flea market days on 2nd Sundays of the month twice. The one thing I have not done; is watch an actual game here. There's tons of parking here. If you go to watch the fireworks, I would recommend parking on... More

This review is for July 4th Fireworks event at Rose Bowl. 1. Fireworks: EXCELLENT!! Still the BEST Fireworks in LA. Every year has different creative presentation. 2. Parking: FWY 134 E, off ramp is back up on the freeway already. It took over 45 minutes to get in the parking lot after exiting the freeway. Only 2 staffs (lines) to... More

I've lived around the Rose Bowl for over ten years. There are so many fun things to do there: exercise (run/walk the loop), football games, concerts, 4rth of July and on and on. Inside the stadium is quite old. The bench seating is horrible so if you can upgrade to an actual seat it's highly worth it. Flea market is... More

I visited because I was in town on vacation and this place is famous and highly ranked compared to other college stadiums. About 70,000 fans showed up and the weather was perfect. From what I could tell, any seat is a good spot to catch the game. The concessions are pretty pricy, but there is good selection. I would definitely... More

I am what you would call, "a local" to the Rose Bowl and for years I've boot-camped inside, on the stairs from 8:30 to 9:30 on M, W & Friday. I've also attended the flea market, many concerts, events and games here. I know from experience there are those who want to just see the gates, that this place means... More
