Happy St. Patrick's Day! A day where everyone is Irish even just a little! The real reason for the post aside from the fact Boston is my favorite city on the planet...Boston recognizes the increased commerce and tourism surrounding events like St. Patrick's Day festivities and the annual marathon. In recent years there has been more demand for officials to focus on making the city more accessible for everyone to enjoy the beauty of all things Boston.
If they do this and somehow reduce the cost of airfare to the city, they will have an influx in tourists vising Fenway pahk, The Gahden, and just about anywhere you can get a warm cup of New England clam chowda or lobstah! (all read in a Boston accent - think Mark Wahlberg)
According to the report, 31.5 million Americans, or nearly 10% of the population, claim Irish ancestry. The U.S. has the third-highest Irish population in the world, behind only Germany and Ireland itself.
