The Rose Bowl

The stadium is the site of the annual college football bowl game, the Rose Bowl, held on New Year’s Day. In 1982, it became the home field of the UCLA Bruins college football team of the Pac-10 Conference.

Not to far off the path, this site can be added to your “things to do in Hollywood” list, and is most definitely a rich piece of Southern California history.
