St. Augustine, Florida
St. Augustine has been revealed to be the city of origin for St. Patrick's Day parades, which go all the way back to 1600, when Spanish settlers began the custom. While in the historic Oldest City in America, be sure to visit Our Lady of La Leche National Shrine, one of the most famous pilgrimage spots in the U.S. The scenic grounds and beautiful chapel can make for a full day of exploration and reflection.
