Parking tips for Philly?

Does anyone have any tips for avoiding the official lot at Wells Fargo? I tried to purchase a parking pass through the web site, but with fees a $25 parking pass magically ended up being $43.25 total. Are there lots in the area that are more reasonable? Is it cheaper to pay to park there in person? I'll be there night 2. Thanks for any guidance!

    Its probably 25 dollars cash at Wells Fargo Lot. If you go to Citizen's bank park lot, it MIGHT be cheaper but probably not. Lincoln Financial Field will probably be 25 too. A couple blocks away there is "Jetro" lot. It is usually cheaper for sporting events, not sure about the shows though. There there is also FDR park, I've never parked there but I have heard it is free, but not sure. I do know it is a little bit of a walk from there to the lot though. Hope this helps

    That's so helpful, thank you! I'm happy to pay $25, but I'm not willing to pay an extra $20 in fees.

    If anyone has any suggestions regarding where one might park to avoid paying at a parking lot entirely I would greatly appreciate it.

    FYI for everyone parking, the Phillies are also at home Friday night so parking lot will be slammed. Arrive early.

    Well crap. I assumed they were still in DC. That will make traffic fun after the show too. Thanks for the warning!

    BTW- the Phillies are selling pre-paid parking for $19 vs. the $43 on Wells Fargo.

    If you don't mind walking you can park on Pattison Ave.

    I think the Phillies game will be over before PJ, so that crowd should be out of ther by then. Plus, they're playing Cleveland, and with the weather not being so good(chance of rain and the temps in the low 50's-40's, i don't expect a big crowd. Think when the Mets were in town during ther last home stand i notice the attendance for one game was only 20,000. I think we'll be good after the game, but could have some traffic trouble getting ther. So, like GM151575 said: Arrive early if you can.

    No problem.

    But, we all could be screwed if the Phillies game goes extra innings (Seems like PJ shows have been ending near 11:30.). But, like i said i don't expect a BIG crowd for the Cleveland Indians. Hell, ther may be more people at the WFC then CBP>LOL

    I'm a big baseball fan, but even I wouldn't stay extra innings until 11:30 in the cold rain to see a mediocre team (sorry Phillies, sort of). I bet any traffic problems will be caused by PJ fans.

    About 20 minutes. Actually, I just parked on Lawrence, just off Pattinson Ave. near the fish market. Still spots left. It's FREE, and I've parked here before, so I'm not worried about my car.
