Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Boston

Everyone has a bit of Irish in them on St. Patrick’s Day – especially if you’re in Boston! Whether you’re a resident of this historic city or are planning a weekend trip for the festive green holiday, here are the best ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Forest Properties.

See the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade

No St. Paddy’s Day list would be complete without mentioning this iconic parade – so why not kick off the list with it!? The St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes place on Sunday, March 17th in South Boston and is one of the city’s oldest traditions. It begins at 1pm at the Broadway T Stop, continues down Broadway, and ends at Andrews. Our best piece of advice for Landing 53 residents is to stake out a spot-on Broadway and enjoy the cheerful greenery!

This 3-mile, self-guided tour starts in the North End at the Rose Kennedy Rose Garden and ends at Fenway Park.
