Tens of thousands of Phillies fans will flock to the Gulf Coast city in the coming months in support of their favorite team, ready to ‘paint the town red!’
The Grapefruit League season begins with a game against the Houston Astros at Bright House Field on February 23. Fans who prefer to enjoy the action from the comfort of a barstool can visit one of Clearwater’s many Philly-friendly sports bars and restaurants. Conveniently located within walking distance from Bright House Field, Lenny’s Restaurant has remained a favorite with players, coaches, and fans for more than 30 years. The Clearwater staple serves up Phillies-inspired dishes with a healthy dose of hometown comfort and Philadelphia pride every season of the year.
Before or after game time, Clearwater offers an endless array of activities just steps away from one of the country’s most beautiful beaches. Sugar white sand and tranquil Gulf waves captivate visitors, while a broad variety of accommodations appeal to every budget. For visitors not content to leave the action to the pros, Clearwater offers miles of biking and walking trails, beach volleyball courts, boating, and water sports guaranteed to entertain.
Bright House Field has hosted the Phillies and the minor-league Clearwater Threshers since its completion in 2004, with room for more than 8,000 fans. The field is also home to Frenchy’s Tiki Hut Pavilion, a grass seating berm, group picnic areas, party suites, club seats, a children’s play area, an expansive team store and most importantly, great visibility for all.
