Mar 14, 2013 —  Irish and non-Irish eyes around the planet do so much smiling on St. Patrick’s Day that they might start to mist up like the Emerald Isle coastline. Ireland might be the best place to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day, but there’s no shortage of festive cities to visit on March 17th.

All of the world’s major cities offer their own unique spin on the Emerald Isle’s proudest day, with Chicago even going so far as dyeing its river a shamrock shade of green. The Second City also offers a slew of Irish pubs for a green-clad post parade crowd to file into and have a few Guinness pints while listening to some live bagpipe music.

Meanwhile, the South Boston St. Patrick’s Parade in Beantown is a can’t-miss event for locals and offers visitors such an authentic Boston experience that they’ll feel like they’re in a Ben Affleck movie. San Francisco hosts a fun parade too, but also boasts one of the most fun St. Paddy’s Day block bashes around – complete with dancing, live music, and booze – at its St. Patrick’s Day at the Irish Bank.

No matter what city you find yourself in on St. Paddy’s Day – whether it be London or Washington, DC – there is ample opportunity for you to pound Jameson shots, learn an Irish jig, or join in on a raucous chorus of “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.”
