Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Philadelphia

Philadelphia

My Recommendation Tip

Philadelphia has a rich Irish heritage, and the city has been celebrating St. Patrick’s Day since 1771 when they held their first annual parade. In fact, the parade is the second oldest in the country, with New York City having the oldest. After over 240 years of continually running, the parade has grown very large with thousands of spectators and more than 20,000 participants. The festive procession features more than 150 groups, like marching bands, performance groups and Irish associations. Usually, it is held each year on the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day/March 17, unless the holiday falls directly on a Sunday; however, this year, the parade will take place on March 10, 2013, with the theme being “The Philadelphia Irish Memorial: A Decade Of Remembrance.” Starting at 11am at 16th and JFK Boulevard, the procession makes its way down the Ben Franklin Parkway. For the best views, park yourself at Logan Circle or the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Click here for a map of the parade route.

How to Get Around in Philadelphia

My Recommendation Tip

A Shared Arrival Transfer can pick you up curbside from the airport and take you to your hotel. Moreover, you can book a Private Arrival Transfer and Private Departure Transfer for $15.62 each way.

Why You Should Take a Bus Tour in NYC

New York City

My Recommendation Tip

For those visiting New York City, it can be difficult to see all the sites in just one trip. Not only are there a large number of worthwhile attractions, but they’re spread out all over the city. Moreover, figuring out public transportation can be daunting and time-consuming. One smart, comfortable and budget-friendly option to see as much as possible in a short amount of time is to take a bus tour. This is especially worthwhile during those times of the year when New York City humidity or winter cold are at its worst and a climate-controlled vehicle would be much more comfortable.

What to Eat in Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta

My Recommendation Tip

In Atlanta, you’ll discover the true meaning of “soul food,” with many of the ingredients and recipes having a strong African influence. Picture homemade cooking and indulgent, satisfying dishes with lots of hearty vegetables, thick sauces and fried everything. For example, fried chicken with waffles is a popular dish in the city, often covered in creamy butter and thick maple syrup for a mix of savory and sweet to start the morning. It is the signature dish of Gladys Knight and Ron Winans’ Chicken and Waffles, who serve the meal gourmet-style with four chicken wings and an over-sized waffle to a background of smooth music and soulful decor.
