St Patrick’s Day Parade
© Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau

Boston is the undisputed capital of Irish America, and Southie is the Irish capital of Boston. Everyone and their dog wears a shamrock at the parade, making this both the best and worst place to be. The day kicks off with a time-honored traditional breakfast where politicians sing limericks roasting their peers and opponents, setting the jovial stage for one of the largest St Patrick’s Day parades in the US, complete with floats, marching bagpipers and, of course, waving politicians. Pubs along the route and throughout Boston overflow with green beer and ample merrymaking. Later on, the downtown streets are so full of soused pedestrians that hailing a taxi is tantamount to catching a fly ball at Fenway Park.
