Wonderful experience to watch a game or a concert at the Rose Bowl. It seats more than 90.000 people, even more on concerts. Lots of facilities and parking available, although you must be prepared to walk a lot on a sed out event. Great organization...More

The stadium itself was impressive enough but what surprised me was all the activity outside the stadium . Pasadena itself is a very attractive community.

I have trained for four LA Marathons by using the Rose Bowl loop. It is mostly good for that. The path is wide, parking is ample, and the 5k length is just right. However, they do not do an adequate job of notifying the public...More

So awesome. But boy was it hot on 5.21.17. Paid $60 preferred parking and it was well worth it. Parked on grass lawn, tailgate in the shade behind our car. Really good vibe. Venue is big. Only purchased a "large" bottle of water once inside...More

We caught the second show by U2 on Sunday night. The concert experience was marvelous with the band putting on a great show (although I could have done without the preaching and liberal clichés). As for the venue itself, it is very impressive. But everybody...More

Going to U2 in May. It's a long way out to The Rosebowl so I guess it would be better to stay in Hollywood than Santa Monica when I'm in LA for a long weekend as it's closer and what the best way to travel to the venue? Or recommend other locations to stay that have plenty to see/do? Thanks
