You know that St. Patrick’s Day is on Friday, which means it’s not too late to fly somewhere that does the holiday right. Like Buffalo, New York. Just try to ignore the snowstorm that everyone is staying inside for!!
My wife has always wanted to go to Savannah for St. Patrick’s Day and this year, we are making it happen! So when I heard a story about the best cities to celebrate this holiday in, I was excited to see where Savannah fit into the study from WalletHub!
So, how do they get the 200 biggest cities in the country from the best to worst place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? The rankings are based on factors like parades, parties, percentage of Irish people living there, Irish pubs and restaurants, beer prices, hotel prices and weather.
Side note, even in spite of that last factor, Buffalo still came out as the best St. Patrick’s Day city in the United States. Have you ever heard that?
Ten Best Cities To Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day:
- Buffalo, NY
- Madison, Wisconsin
- Cedar Rapids, Iowa
- Worcester, Massachusetts
- Akron, Ohio
Umm, where the heck is Savannah on this list? I am guessing that the price of our hotel room might have brought down the points in the GOOD! It was EXPENSIVE! What about the worse, surely Savannah isn’t on THAT list is it?
The 10 Worst Cities To Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day:
- Palmdale, California
- Santa Ana, California
- San Bernardino, California
- Miramar, Florida
- Lancaster, California
- Mesquite, Texas

I am happy to see that neither Savannah or Orlando made the worst list! I’ll get back to you after the weekend all about our time in Savannah! We have a great group of friends and no kiddos for the weekend AND just wait until you see the costumes!! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
