Although this is actually located in the city of Los Angeles, most visitors to the greater LA area prefer to stay in Pasadena if you are interested in going to Dodger Stadium. Located just south of Pasadena on the 2 freeway, you will be about 7 miles away from the stadium from your hotel in Pasadena.
Dodger Stadium truly is worth the ticket...even if you do not like baseball. For $10 US, you can get a good seat, see native Angelinos watch their favorite affordable team, in an absolutely wonderful venue. Something about the Purple Mountains with the Palm Trees in the distance as the sun goes down over LA makes this place magical.
Enjoy this wonderful piece of LA history!
