Day Trip to Ireland, Indiana

No passport needed to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland—so long as you head to Ireland, Indiana, a little town in the southwestern corner of the state that celebrates the emerald holiday in a big way. Annual festivities include a Paddy Whack (rock-paper-scissors) contest, front-door decorating, an Irish road rally and Irish Trot 5k, the crowning of a Miss Shamrock, and, of course, plenty of green beer.
