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

I have been to the rose Bowl many times to see UCLA play and for other events The parking is on the Golf Course and you still can do a tail gate party there.

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

Incredible game. Marvelous atmosphere but the stadium needs a makeover. Horrible to get in and out. Lots of food and beverages available but visit the bank before you come.

In spite of the fact that this place is gigantic, it has all the hominess of your old auntie's house. You feel like you have been there a million times. They have done a lot of renovations and technical upgrades, but they were very careful not to disturb the friendly ghosts. Be sure to schedule a tour if you are... More

We attended the College Playoff Rose Bowl--Ducks Vs Seminoles. This is a very nice stadium with ample parking and location. However, the prices for food and drink at the stadium are outrageous. I don't mind paying a little more because of an event venue, but $14 for a beer (Coors at that) and highly inflated fast-food items are bordering on... More
