Atlanta’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a yearly event that takes place on Peachtree Street. Conveniently near multiple MARTA stations, the family-friendly includes floats, bands, dancers and Irish representatives from various groups.

To reach the start of the parade on MARTA, take any red or gold line train to the Arts Center MARTA station. Use the West Peachtree Street exit and turn left on West Peachtree then a quick left on 15th Street. The parade start is less than a block up the street.

Or take the train to the Midtown MARTA station to reach the middle of the parade route. From the main station exit (not to the Federal Reserve), turn right on 10th Street and walk less than a block to Peachtree Street.
