We have tickets to the Rose Bowl on 1/1. We will be staying in the Century City area of LA. We were planning to drive from our hotel in Century City to the Rose Bowl and park there. I have heard that the parking is tough and the traffic is really bad. We were planning to leave early (7-8am) to get to the stadium and park. The game begins at 2pm. Will have trouble finding parking at that time? Also, if we do get there that early and find a spot, is it possible to get into the town of Pasadena from the stadium to see a bit of the parade and check out the town. Is it walkable from the stadium parking lots to the town and back? We've never been and would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
