And The Best Place to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Is…
If you're from Illinois and you've spent a St. Patrick's Day celebrating in Chicago, the results of this survey may seem like a no brainer, but it turns out Chicago really is the most awesome place for Irish fun.
The website Treetopia recently analyzed Google Trends data to determine where the best cities to celebrate each holiday in the United States are. Turns out, New Orleans does it up best for Easter and the king of Christmas fun is Orlando, but the pot of gold for St. Patty's Day fun is...Chicago!
Obviously a city that is full of Irish heritage and physically dyes the river that runs through it green, has to top the list, right? You bet, but Treetopia also says Chicago's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, and the St. Patrick's Day Festival In The Irish American Heritage Center are the two other festivities that land Chicago on the top of the list.
Think it's too late to book a hotel in Chicago for St. Patrick's Day weekend? Since the holiday falls on a Saturday this year, I'm betting the windy city will be packed with Irish and Irish-ish partiers.
