The 2013 baseball season is upon us and now is the time to make plans to follow your Phillies on the road with us. For the third straight year, we are partnering with our friends at Phils Fever to bring you some amazing trips in great locations around the country.
Like every year, the road trip season starts in Clearwater with Spring Training and this year it will conclude with a Phillies in Wrigley / Temple football at Notre Dame super-trip – with plenty of fun in between. You can find information on the six trips that are currently available below. Plans for the Washington, DC trips are still being finalized, so they are not available yet, but will be soon. There are 3 trips coming up quickly in March and April, so email some friends now and start booking your spots before we sell out!
Spring Training trip to Clearwater, FL
Friday, March 15 to Monday, March 18
This is easily the most fun you’ll have on a road trip. In a single weekend you have – Phillies Spring Training, St. Patrick’s Day, March Madness, and Spring Break! All this within the famously sunny surroundings of Clearwater, Florida. If you are a serious Phillies fan, you need to at least consider coming on this relaxing annual trip.
Trip to Miami South Beach and Marlins Stadium
Friday, April 12 to Monday, April 15
Haven’t seen the newest stadium in the NL East yet? Want to enjoy the warm, beautiful setting of Miami while it’s still chilly up North? Then come with us to South Beach. For the Saturday night game, we’ll be sitting in the Clevelander Bar seats in left field, one of the coolest views in baseball. We’ll also be staying at the world famous Clevelander Hotel in South Beach in order to enjoy all the gorgeous scenery the city has to offer.
Bus trip to Citi Field, New York City
Saturday, April 27
This trip features charter bus service to and from Citi Field with tickets in the outfield bleachers for the 7:10 pm game on April 27. As you know, the area around the ballpark is not very conducive to tailgating, so we’re partying at McFadden’s in Citi Field with all the carved top round, roast pork, buffalo wings, pasta salad, cole slaw, green salad, soft pretzels, soda and domestic beers you can handle.
Memorial Day at Fenway Park, Boston
Saturday, May 25 to Tuesday, May 28
For the opening leg of a very strange baseball “home and home,” we find ourselves heading to Boston for a two day series on Monday the 27th and Tuesday the 28th of this year. The Boston Park Plaza is once again playing host to us and has given us the ability to do 2 or 3 night trips over any days you would like to travel. Thus, we are not going to include any transportation costs in this trip. You will tailgate and party at the Cask ‘n Flagon, a staple watering hole on Brookline Ave. and a mere 50 feet to the corner right field entrance into Fenway. Our tickets for the Monday, Memorial Day game will be in the outfield bleachers. If you’ve never seen baseball at the historic Fenway Park, now is the time.
Bus trip to Citi Field, New York City
Saturday, July 20
Our second New York trip features charter bus service to and from Citi Field with tickets in the outfield bleachers for the 1:10 pm Phillies-Mets game on July 20. As you know, the area around the ballpark is not very conducive to tailgating, so we’re partying at McFadden’s in Citi Field with all the carved top round, roast pork, buffalo wings, pasta salad, cole slaw, green salad, soft pretzels, soda and domestic beers you can handle.
Chicago: Phillies at Wrigley and Temple Football vs. Notre Dame
Friday, August 30 to Monday, September 2
It doesn’t get much better than this! Under the package we have set up, you will go to TWO sacred grounds this weekend. We start with a great Friday night bar crawl on State and Division Streets with our good friends at McFadden’s, Finn McCool’s, and end at Shenanigan’s. There will be no cover and great drink specials for all!
Upon waking Saturday morning, you will take a charter bus to South Bend, Indiana, where you will watch the Temple Owls take on BCS runner-up, Notre Dame Fighting Irish! This is the first time these two schools have ever met on the gridiron. We will have a full tailgate there and you will enjoy that which many people have never seen, a Philadelphia football team playing in South Bend!
Sunday we will head to Wrigleyville for a private bar at Murphy’s Bleachers where your beer and well drinks will be covered for two-hours. With 1 hour to go before the first pitch, we will head to 1032 Loveland for famous rooftop seats (not looking directly into the sun) where all of your food, beer, wine, and tips are included until 30 minutes after the Phillies-Cubs game!
See you on the road!
