No Rose Bowl Tours Today – It’s Football Time
The historic Rose Bowl Stadium set in its beautiful arroyo in Pasadena has hosted some of the greatest college football games ever, and let us not forget to mention NFL games including the Super Bowl (5 times). But tonight it is time for the UCLA Bruins, the home team, to bring on the Friday Night Lights. The 7-2 Bruins need to win to continue on their path to the PAC-12 South Division title. Their opponents, the 6-3 Washington Huskies, their own quest failed, would like to spoil the Bruin season. Kickoff is at 6pm whether you are at the stadium or watching on television. If football is not your thing but historic architecture is then we suggest telling your private Los Angeles tour guide to bring you over to Pasadena to see this incredible structure and its almost complete renovation. Now 100 years old and going strong, good for another 100 years they tell us, the stadium will not likely be setting attendance records as it has in the past (almost 107,000 fans for the 1973 Rose Bowl game – USC vs. Ohio State). The renovation reduced the number of seats in favor of increased fan comfort and safety. This is a really impressive sporting facility set in an exquisite park setting and well worth visiting with or without an event bringing you to Pasadena.
