I've been going to Spring Training for about 15 years, but there might not be any games this season.

There is a general sense that the beginning of spring training is going to be delayed, due to the Major League Baseball lockout.

The two sides have met, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of traction thus far putting both the Grapefruit League and Cactus League in doubt.

While there might not be any games to check out at Spectrum Field this season, going to Clearwater and Clearwater Beach is a great trip -- even without baseball.

While baseball is a big part of the trip, seeing Spring Training games is not the only reason you need check out Clearwater and nearby Clearwater Beach, which just might be the best spot in the Grapefruit League.

I recommend going down the first four days of the NCAA Tournament, so you can enjoy a mixture of baseball, basketball and a good beer in the sun, while having fun and not having to worry about work.

So if you're going to head to Phillies Spring Training here are some of my favorite spots to hit when you go.
