I totally loved it there. UCLA fans were really nice with lots of people cooking amazing food. The atmosphere is exactly what you want for football. The stadium is old and that is just the way is supposed to be.

Great stadium to visit!! This stadium has so much history as the Rose Bowl is played here every year! We were bummed that tours were not offered of this stadium when we visited and the entire stadium was gated so we couldnt get good photos

Unless there is an UCLA game on. Or the Rose Bowl is on why? It is a cool old stadium. But the energy is the GAME

We recently attended the Rose Bowl to see Green Day in concert. It was an excellent venue with clean amenities. Parking could have been a little cheaper but is on par with other stadiums I guess.

Located in a park which has a golf course. Right on the outskirts of Pasadena. . Unfortunately it was closed for a private event.

Given the two teams, neither of which have been to a Rose Bowl in recent memory (ever?), I'd recommend having them ahead of time. That said, there will be scalpers.

We were at a football game. I don't have any knowledge about the Rose Bowl Parade on New Years Day.
