If nothing else, look forward to our weather and soaking up some sunshine.  Currently it’s hovering around 30 degrees in Seattle, and about 40 degrees in Columbus.  L.A. is a perfect 70 degrees.  But, there’s so much more. There are endless things to do when in LA for The Rose Bowl.  Obviously, this should include the Rose Parade along Colorado Boulevard before the big game. Plan ahead, and make the most out your time in the city.

Washington Huskies

First, a little on logistics.  Pasadena is part of Los Angeles County.  It’s about 15 minutes north of our Downtown area, aka DTLA.  It’s also about 40 minutes east of communities like Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  These two areas, along with West Hollywood, are perfect well-centered locations to stay. It’s where most of the famous landmarks are located.  This includes the Sunset Strip, the walk of fame, celebrity homes, Chinese Theater, Rodeo Drive, movie studios like Warner Bros., Universal and Paramount, Melrose Avenue, Farmers Market, The Griffith Park Observatory, and The Grove.  Plus, you’re closer to the beach communities of Santa Monica, Venice and Malibu.

You could enjoy the Pasadena festivities on the 1st, and take in a few days in the Hollywood area, and enjoy a full beach day of walking the boardwalk in Venice and the Santa Monica Pier, and dining along The 3rd Street Promenade.

If you’re into museums, check out The Getty Center in Brentwood, The Broad, LACMA, and MOCA in Los Angeles, or The Huntington Library and The Norton Simon in Pasadena.
