March Adventure: St. Patrick’s Day In Boston

Tom Malone/Adventure Tribune
Each month brings its own international festival, religious celebration, or local event that provides its own cultural experience. For many people, traveling to a certain St. Patrick’s Day celebration in March can enhance the exploration of that city’s culture by interacting with its people in ways that you can’t do on any other day.

Boston is one such city. By adventuring to Boston for its St. Patrick’s Day Parade, you’ll experience the city like never before.

Visit an Irish pub, like The Burren or Corrib Pub, for some quality Irish stout, food, and music. Enjoy corned beef and cabbage, shepherd's pie, and some Irish fusion tacos.

Of course, South Boston’s famous parade occurs on the Sunday closest to St. Patrick’s Day. If you plan on attending the St. Patrick’s Day Parade (which you should if you’re traveling all the way to Boston for this holiday), arrive early, bring food and drinks, and make friends all day long.

Before the St. Patrick’s Day Parade begins (or long after it’s over), hike along the Irish Heritage Trail. According to Thrillist, “A more focused counterpart of the Freedom Trail, this one introduces you to all the state’s most famous (and infamous) Irish-Americans... mostly starting with JFK.”

For quality Irish music, visit any string of local pubs. Or, check out the House of Blues, which often features Boston’s infamous Irish band, Dropkick Murphy’s.

If you want a little fitness over your St. Patrick’s Day adventure, enter the 5K St Patrick's Day Road Race in Southie, which has occurred each year since 1940.

Whatever you do, be prepared for unpredictable fun in one of America’s most iconic cities.
