Pageantry, History, and Luxurious Accommodations

During the 2011 college football season, the Wisconsin Badgers and the Oregon Ducks combined to score a whopping 1,112 points. And each team did so at nearly the same clip—the Badgers put up 564 points to the Ducks’ 548. So it’s a natural fit that the two heavyweight teams will battle January 2 in the 2012 Rose Bowl, a game that pundits predict will be one of the highest-scoring Rose Bowls in history. To get an up-close view of the offensive fireworks, Badger Trips has tailored comprehensive travel packages: after tailgating and getting amped up at team pep rallies, fans will attend the Rose Bowl itself.

On the morning of New Year’s Eve, Badger fans will board a private, chartered jet from Dane County Regional Airport (MSN) in Madison direct to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The long trip is made breezy thanks to a stylish aircraft: travels can sink into plush seats and watch movies, listen to music, and play video games on the entertainment systems.

Once on the ground, travelers will be taken by shuttle to the Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza, a Four Diamond retreat situated atop historical Bunker Hill. For three nights, guests can take advantage of all the Omni has to offer, whether they wish to camp out in recently renovated deluxe rooms, ease pre-game anxiety at the onsite spa, or debate the merits of the wishbone offense at the romantic Noé Restaurant, voted Best Romantic Restaurant by the Los Angeles Times Readers Choice Awards. Leading up to the big game, fans can use shuttle services to freely hop to and from various festivities and sightseeing opportunities: on Saturday there’s a massive group pep rally and on Sunday a four-hour tour of Los Angeles and a group viewing of the Green Bay Packers game. Check out a detailed trip itinerary here.

On Monday morning, buses board for Pasadena to the storied Rose Parade, which is followed by the Badger Huddle—a massive tailgate that serves beers, brats, and a spread of snacks. And then, finally, the main event kicks off at 2 p.m., when the University of Wisconsin will compete to be crowned Rose Bowl champion. Established in 1902, the Rose Bowl is known as the “Granddaddy of Them All” and, outside of fishing marshmallows from cereal, is the oldest bowl game known to man. At the center of the legendary 90,000-seat stadium, players such as Wisconsin Badger running back Montee Ball—who has scored 38 touchdowns this season—will look to turn in a legendary performance to join Wisconsin alum and Heisman Trophy-winner Alan Ameche in the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame.
