Spectrum Field – formerly Bright House Field – is a state-of-art facility that attracts Phillies fans and other baseball fans, who pack the 8,500 seats for each game. A tiki bar sits in the outfield for visitors who want the full Florida experience, and the concession stands feature authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwiches as good as the ones back home. Clearwater is also home to Clearwater Beach, one of the favorite beaches for locals who flock to the powdery white sands, and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where Winter the dolphin still lives and entertains guests.

- If the ballpark grub doesn’t do it for you, there are plenty of Clearwater restaurant institutions nearby for your game day fix. Capogna’s Dugout – serving pizza, hoagies and burgers – has been around for decades. And the very first Hooters restaurant is just a few miles away as well.
- Traffic in this area of Clearwater is crazy year-round but especially during the spring when snowbirds are still in town, so plan extra time into your travel plans.
- To see a Phillies spring game the way only a Floridian would, head to Frenchy’s Tiki Pavilion in the outfield for some cold adult beverages.
