Philadelphia is nothing if not historic. Home to Benjamin Franklin, the Liberty Bell, and of course, the Phillies, the city has a longstanding habit of creating memorable moments and characters.
Opened in 2004, Citizens Bank Park has already played host to more than its fair share of baseball history. The 2008 World Series concluded there, when Brad Lidge closed out the Phillies' first championship since 1980.
Just two years later, the park witnessed its first no-hitter in spectacular fashion, as Phillies ace Roy Halladay fired the second postseason no-no in Major League history.
The compact, classic CBP is chock full of eye-catching features like the 50-foot tall Liberty Bell, which lights up for each Phillies home run -- to say nothing of the view of Philadelphia's skyline. Still, to go full Philly, any day or night at CBP requires a detour down Ashburn Alley -- for a snack and a healthy dose of history.
- Chickie's and Pete's Crab Fries: These Old Bay-doused fries are the most addictive snack at CBP. This crowd-pleaser can be found behind section 102, and like most Philly specialties, you can top the fries with cheese.
- The Wall of Fame: Situated in the Memory Lane area of Ashburn Alley, this display connects fans to the great personalities and players of Phillies lore -- from Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt to legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas.
