  • Had been here for Chelsea FC vs Liverpool FC soccer match. Was an amazing experience to watch sport stars live in the stadium. This stadium has well planned entries and exits based on the seating you have been assiged. Easy access to restrooms and food places. It has a well managed parking spot however it is difficult to find a free parking spot. There are paid parking spots available but too expensive. I would suggest travelling by public transport or prefer taking an Uber to this place during any event. Beautiful place surrounded by mountains in the city of Pasadena and I believe it would be an amazing experience attending any sports or musical event at this stadium.
  • Such a fun game day experience and legendary must see for college football fans. I would give this 5 stars but the seats are just so uncomfortable. But this is so fun to see a game especially when UCLA is good and for the bowl game. Saw them and Oregon St. play here,
  • Came here for the Coldplay concert and it was a great venue to see them at. Sound setup was perfect no matter where you are sitting and security was quick and easy to get in. Shuttles worked great for parking off site.
  • This place has a lot to offer. First of all, you can have a great workout. Going around the gold course and the rose bowl, amounts to 3 miles. If working out is not on your mind, then you can have breakfast at the gold course restaurant. Great coffee and sunny side up eggs.
  • I visited the Rose Bowl Flea Market which is held on the second Sunday of every month. There are certainly more vendors than you can count with a wealth of things to sell. There are many professionals who frequent the market to fill their shops with antiques or special items. Take a half a day to browse around. Everything it outdoors so weather permitting. Surely a bargain to be had, or just an experience. Keep in mind that some of those clothes and shoes have probably been sitting out in the sun for a while!
