St. Patrick’s Day is approaching and with it a few deals close to home and farther away. The 57th Annual Saint Patrick’s Day parade in Newport, R.I., is March 16, a two-hour affair that weaves through the City By the Sea, with pipe bands, marching bands, clowns, re-enactment groups and more. The Viking Hotel, near the parade route and downtown, has rates that weekend from $209 a night. Check it out at www.hotelviking.com

Down in N.Y., they’ll run the 51st Annual “Friends of Erin” St. Patrick’s Day Parade March 17 in Montauk, said to be the second largest in the state. The nearby Montauk Yacht Club Resort has rates from $129, which can be found at www.montaukyachtclub.com

If you seek warmer parade climes, Naples, Fla. celebrates its 35th Annual St. Patrick’s Day March 16, said to be the biggest privately funded parade in the state, attracting some 40,000 people downtown. Two places offer deals: Naples Lemon Tree Inn, a boutique hotel within walking distance to two Irish pubs and two blocks from the parade route, has rooms from $152. Check it out at www.lemontreeinn.com. Close to the water is the Naples Bay Resort, with rooms from $399, a resort recently voted one of Florida’s Top 40 Resorts by Conde Nast Traveler and Top 500 Hotels in the World by Travel + Leisure.
