As an English guy we only get to see the odd football game here when the NFL visits the UK. I've always wanted to see a college game, and where better than somewhere like the Rose Bowl for my first ever college game experience. The only disappointment was the traffic getting there, we wanted to arrive early for the tailgating... More

Stopped by for a quick photo from the outside of the stadium. Unable to enter unless you have booked a tour, but worth a quick photo for any football fan. Talked to the security guard and from his post, could just see the corner of the field. Took some nice photos from outside of the stadium.

Had my commencement exercises from college here. Often visited swap meets here. Saw a rodeo here and finally watched the Rose Bowl game here. It has been a national and especially a Southern California landmark for over 100 years. Its a great place for lots of events, but especially a football game.

Got reserved seats for the 2016 America fest at the Rosebowl on July 4. Because of the difficulty leaving in past years, we stayed in a hotel in nearby Pasadena. The stadium as only about 10 minutes away and made it there in short order. Heading towards the designated handicapped parking, we were checked by Pasadena PD for proper DMV... More

Our family spent July 4th at the Rise Bowl. Now while we live close enough we can walk up the hill and watch the fireworks being inside and seeing them close up is so awesome! They even had activities for every age prior to entering the stadium. The big screens and patriotic music amped up the already great event! You... More

Okay it just a stadium. But it a place sports fans wouldn't mind just stopping by and snapping a few shots. There is a country club next door, and a park and walking/biking trails visit early and take a nice jog.

Recently attended The famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena California. I went to three soccer games for the Copa America tournament. The stadium is massive and had great views no matter where you sit. only problem is the parking. Very difficult to get in and out.

To get into the stadium by car was a breeze but to get out was a nightmare nobody telling where to get out. No control at all getting out. Anywhere you sit is a good place But to get to your seat is a bit narrow and a pain if your in the middle of the row.
