The Best Spots to Watch the Chicago River Turn Green

The day is almost here. Where will you watch the river turn green?

No city does St. Paddy’s like Chicago. With this annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration comes the coloring of the Chicago River into an insanely bright green. It can be pretty hard to find a spot, though. Check out this list to pick your location!

State Street Bridge
Optimal views from the State Street Bridge make this location a popular spot!

LondonHouse Chicago
This rooftop bar has some of the best Chicago River views in the whole city. LH’s event includes a 4-hour open bar.

Marshall’s Landing
Right next to the Merchandise Mart, Marshall’s Landing is having a celebration all their own. Tickets for this event¬†are on the cheaper end, so hopefully they don’t sell out!

Odyssey Cruises
Cruise along the river for $75 in a glass-enclosed boat!

Chicago Riverwalk
Arrive as early as possible (with or without alcohol, you be the judge) and get your prime spot.
