Look I have no choice in going to this old dump to see UCLA football, but this "iconic" venue is a dump. Lines are long to use restrooms, even after expanding them. The scoreboard is hard to read, especially on the South side. The replay...More

So much more than just a football stadium. Take the tour, enjoy the history, walk around the grounds that include large parks and brookside golf club. Have lunch or a drink on the patio at brookside and take in the beauty of the arroyo seco....More

Best venue to see a game. Granddaddy of them all. With the San Gabriel mountains in the backdrop, what a beautiful scene to behold. Don't miss an opportunity to visit this beautiful venue.

Had a blast while in Pasadena. Went to Beyoncé & Jay Z concert and it was A W E S O M E... Hardly no traffic because we arrived early. However, after the concert traffic was a nightmare.
