We had a little time to kill in Pasadena and this was worth sticking into google maps to take a quick drive around the Rose Bowl. Unfortunately, we didn't plan ahead to get a tour (which are only given once a month). But we did stop for the obligatory picture.

I love going to this flea market swap meet! This occurs at the Rose Bowl Stadium every second Sunday of the Month. You can walk and walk and walk....AND I always find great deals! It is so enormous that it is impossible to finish walking around the entirety of the place, so it is best to saunter around and soak... More

Very nice stadium if you are in the Pasadena California area. Best time to visit is during the Rose Bowl game!

Even in the BCS era, there are few games that rival the Rose Bowl. I've been to four of them and you really cannot beat the atmosphere. Due to the configuration of the seats, there is not a bad seat in the house. You may have to contend with the SoCal heat for part of the game, however the stadium... More

College football in the Rose Bowl is truly a magnificent experience. Parking and tailgating on Brookside Golf Course, navigating the narrow tunnels into the bowl and gazing at the sunset-lit mountains... It is almost religious.

My first time to the Rose Bowl. Over 50,000 people ready to party. They really handled the parking well though they should for $40/car. We parked on the golf course about a mile walk in. Our seats were row 76. Once I got up there I couldn't get down for anything. Husband missed half the concert standing in line for... More

Attended the famous monthly flea market held in the Rose Bowl parking lot. Lot's of cheap imported junk - but there are many interesting finds if you know what you are looking for,

This flea market is massive! Entrance cost is $8, VIP parking is $15, but if you are willing to walk about the length of a football stadium you can park for free. Wear sensible shoes and sunscreen or better yet, buy an umbrella from one of the stalls as it gets incredibly hot. Start early and bring cash. Some vendors... More
