A stadium I have seen on tv on many occasions watching american football but in the flesh a big let down. The seating is very poor - benches - and in many places you are a long way from the playing area. Stewarding of the local derby game between UCLA and USC was a joke with numerous fights breaking out... More

We were staying in old town Pasadena and wanted to get in a nice walk and run. The designated path is 3 miles to go completely around the Stadium and you can easily add more to the experience with many trails all the way up to Devils Gate Dam and down towards suicide Bridge in the Arroyo Seco Canyon.

It is like walking a 5K to walk around the Bowl. My Family has gone to a couple football games there which were so exciting. Ohio State Buckeyes were playing and we are from Ohio, they won. It also was exciting because our son lived up on the hill behind the stadium and you could see into it and watch... More

Came for the ucla Utah game... all the fans were really nice, our kids loved it. Wish they had a bigger selection of food but the teriyaki bowl I had was good. Great game!

We plan to come back for the festivities in January and wanted to take a peek while it was easy to maneuver. Given how much revenue this place generates, it's not all that. The adjacent golf course was actually more impressive as a well maintained sports facility. The mountain backdrop does create a beautiful setting.

The Home of UCLA Football and the Rose Bowl Game, the Rose Bowl Stadium is one of Pasadena's historic treasures. But it's also a very good venue for soccer. The LA Galaxy used to play here before moving to Carson, and a number of occasional high-profile friendlies and matches involving clubs and national teams play here.

This flea market has the most interesting finds. It's fun to walk around and look at what people have to sell. Objects of interest include movie props, designer clothes, musical instruments, furniture, various forms of art. You name it. It's there. There is food available and sometimes music entertainment near the stadium. You can also check out the rose bowl... More

Let me clear up straight away that the Rose Bowl Flea Market is absolutely jumbo – I’ve never seen anything like it – and there’s just about something for everyone there. It’s a real treasure trove. Second thing to say is that we were pleasantly surprised to be allowed into a section of the stadium itself for a look round.... More

I went there last Saturday for the UCLA Standford football game at 5pm. I decided to park at Parsons and take a shuttle to the stadium. We got to the parking lot at 3pm. There were signs on the street to take you to entrance and attendants showing you where to park. I prepaid online. Otherwise, it's $15 Cash Only.... More
