5. Philadelphia, PA
Philly, Philly, Philly, oh, how we LOVE you. Simply because you host one of America's best annual bar crawls for St. Patrick's day. To top things off they offer FREE transportation to most of the bars participating in the bar crawl. Does it get any better than this? YES, actually it does. One of the best drinks you can get in Philly is the "Chocolate Leprechaun Cocktail" which is made up of Irish Cream, Chocolate Syrup and Milk. UMM, you had me a chocolate! All the bars offer tons of Irish style beers and great food specials!
4. Savannah, GA
This small town in Georgia is actually known to have America's 2nd largest St. Patrick's Day parade with great marching bands and even the HUGE clydesdale horses. Savannah is also known for all of it's historic buildings and a delicious culinary scene. Now for the BEST part, the night life, which is outstanding here. There are bar crawls all along River Street. You can actually purchase a wristband and have access into all the bars participating in the bar crawl. We have been told that everyone who goes there must try the Attitude Improvement at Wet Willie's. It is a frozen, slushy drink and you are able to order with or without (what?) alcohol. Did I mention you can take TO GO cups??
3. Chicago, IL
Chicago is primarily known for dying the Chicago River GREEN! Thousands of people come to Chicago to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Chicago LOVES St. Patrick's Day and you will see that almost every bar, store or even gas station will be celebrating the holiday. Most of the bars offer a huge variety of Irish Beers, but the most popular drink in most bars is the Green River. Kinda of fitting, huh? This is a mix of Midori melon liqueur, DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker schnapps, and 1/2 oz. sweet and sour mix over ice. You take this as a shot and it is so smooth and delicious!!
2. Boston, MA
"It's St. Patrick's Day, Have another one" is the motto here in Boston on this holiday, and I don't think I have ever heard of a better motto in my life. There's so much to do that Boston actually starts the celebration the weekend before! There is a St. Patrick's Day Road Race that is 3 miles long and all proceeds from the event go to an organization which helps teens stay safe and off the streets. There is also a huge Pub Crawl, which you can purchase tickets for that allow you access to all the Pub's participating. Most Pubs will be serving all kinds of GREEN IRISH Beer but a local favorite is Peppermint Paddy Cocktail. This drink is supposed to taste just like a thin mint, that is all we needed to hear!! It is a mix of green crème de menthe, Bailey’s, white crème de cocoa, and vodka. We will definitely be putting Boston on our Bucket List. It sounds like an amazing time!
1. Pittsburgh, PA
Good Ol' Pittsburgh has the highest percentage of its' population identifying as Irish. So that can only mean one thing, they must LOVE to PARTY and celebrate this holiday! Everywhere you go, everyone, young or old, will be celebrating. They are very proud of their heritage! Like the other cities on my list, Pittsburgh has a huge parade and bar crawl. One thing that stands out in this city has to be the LIVE MUSIC. There will be live music on almost every street in the downtown area and it's FREE (You can't beat that)! There are literally hundreds of specialty drinks and Irish Beers this city has to offer on St. Paddy's Day, so it was very hard to just pick one. Here are two of the top MUST HAVE drinks. 1. "Shamrock Juice" which is Gin, White Tequila, Light Rum, Blue Curacao and fresh OJ! It sounds and looks amazing! 2. "Irish Cola" which is made with Irish Whiskey (Yes, Jameson is BEST!), Bailey's and Cola! TASTY!! This is the BEST city in America to visit for St. Patrick's Day, and now I know exactly why. The day after St. Paddy's Day, there are a couple of restaurants that actually offer HANGOVER CURE meals, and they are guaranteed to work....I think.
Visiting any one of these cities would be a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year. Another must have on your trip would be one of our Tumbler or St. Paddy's Day Products! Our tumbler's are perfect for road trips. You can't beat custom or specialty St. Paddy's Day apparel or hats!
