Rose Bowl - Pasadena, CA

Few stadiums boast a legacy as rich as the historic Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena. Since 1922, it has hosted the annual Tournament of Roses football game, five NFL Super Bowl games, the 1984 Olympic soccer matches, the 1994 Men’s World Cup, the 1999 Women’s World Cup and four BCS National College Football Championships.

The stadium has undergone many upgrades over the years, including an extensive $152 million renovation project that began in 2011 and included a new press box and video board, wider tunnels, additional aisles, an elliptical field, and additional concessions and restrooms.

Rose Bowl is located northeast of downtown Los Angeles in Pasadena, a cultural hub boasting lodging and restaurants for every kind of visitor. A variety of tours are available that tell the story of the city, and the Kidspace Children’s Museum is a must-see for families.

The majestic stadium is easily accessible from State Route 134 and Interstate 210. Tailgating is allowed in the surrounding parking lots, so visitors can pack a cooler, fire up the grill and enjoy the fun family vibe before events.

While there’s extensive parking available surrounding Rose Bowl Stadium, walking from the lot to the stadium can take as long as 10 minutes. Visitors are encouraged to pre-purchase parking to guarantee a conveniently located space.

It is the oldest running bowl game and has earned the nickname 'The Granddaddy of Them All'.
