    St. Patrick's Day in South Boston (or Southie as the locals call it,) is one of the biggest celebrations in the city, thanks to a large and proud Irish American population. The parade is one of the biggest in the country and nearly 1 million people gather to watch the floats and hear Irish bagpipes and music travel through the streets. Guinness beers will be flowing like water at any and every Irish pub in the city, of which there are many. Visitors can also take guided tours of the Irish Heritage Trail through the city and learn about more than 300 years of Irish history in Boston.
