Even people who are not big football fans have heard of the Rose Bowl, the annual January 1 game played there is so famous. There is also a great flea market there. Virtually unknown fact: my grandfather provided all the lumber for the stadium's benches when it was first built.

Went to a UCLA/Oregon football game and was amazed at the amount of fans crowding the stadium, parking lots, and streets. In a beautiful location, the Rose Bowl offers lots of space for the tail gaters. It’s well organized but the stadium seating is cramped and uncomfortable. After sitting in the 95 degree sun for several hours, I was thrilled... More

I have been a UCLA season ticket holder for almost 30 years, so I am very familiar with the stadium on typical game days and for the Rose Bowl Game. It is a great venue. Sight lines are excellent. With the upgrades made in the last couple years, the in-stadium experience is outstanding. You can even get a cell signal... More

An amazing view is just the beginning of your experience to the Rose Bowl. Sight lines in the stadium are superb. The amount of elevation change for the distance from the field is nearly perfect. When you are a few rows back from the action you are at the right elevation to see the players clearly without binoculars. The aisles... More

If you can purchase prepaid parking in advance, do it. It will save you money. If not it is $40. They had an event before the concert, Kiis picnic in the park, which started at 2, so they gave everyone who got there before 4p.m. a $10. discount off parking. I got there right before 2 and got to park... More

Not a bad seat in the house, best part is autumn football in a great tailgate setting. Nice place to ride the back, grab a dog then head in for a game. People watching is great. Nothing like college football in So Cal in the fall

Attended a football game. The stadium is not hard to find. Lots of signage and directions to the venue. It can be expensive. Parking lots can be crowded. On warm days, take water; it can get hot out there. The crowd was electric. While there are challenges with parking, the energy from the crowd is awesome. I would want to... More

Great sound great stadium and most of all great concert. The Pre- Concert party was fantastic also. Finding our seats was easy. Lots of helpful staff. My daughter left her camera and they helped her get it back.

The arena itself is nice but it's very hard to get in and out of the parking lot. It's a long drive and the parking is $40!! My husband is in a wheelchair and they let us park close by. Unfortunately we saw many people park there, jump out of their cars and run in. The attendance say that they... More

We had so much fun here, even with the heat at 100+ degrees on the day we visited. So much to see and so much to buy. Luckily we had checked an empty bag in anticipation of the shopping. Lots of seating and shade for breaks. We stayed 5 hours and maybe saw half of the market. I want to... More
