On March 17, we celebrate that great American holiday known as St. Patrick’s Day. To many of us, it is a mid-week excuse to get out and party with our friends, watch parades, and act silly. But in many U.S. cities, it is one of the biggest events celebrated all year long.
Here are the best cities to live in for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations:
1. Boston, Mass.: Of course Boston is number one on our list! Boston claims the largest Irish population of any U.S. city at 20.4 percent, making the city a great place for residents to celebrate their heritage. Every year, the city’s numerous apartment residents can walk or drive to the huge St. Patrick’s Day parade, knowing the best vantage points to watch and enjoy. After the parade, they can walk to one of the many Irish pubs that Boston is famous for to celebrate the holiday.
