Experience One of the Best St. Patty’s Day Celebrations

March 04, 2019

Anyone near Chicago on March 17th weekend would be remiss if they didn’t take a trip downtown to experience the way Chicagoans like to celebrate the luckiest day (or should we say weekend?) of the year. Here in the Windy City, you are privy to not one, but two of the best parades throughout the country--one on the north side and one on the south side. In addition to these lively festivities, pubs across the city will play a part in a multitude of bar crawls. Some of our favorites? The Chicago Shamrock Crawl at Wrigleyville outside Wrigley Field and the St. Paddy’s Day River Crawl. Whatever places you decide to visit on the big day, make sure you also get a peek at the iconic green waters of the Chicago River.
