InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Aberdeen

Hello to all Americans in Aberdeen! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Aberdeen? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Aberdeen which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Aberdeen is one of the wealthier destinations in the UK. The Scottish powerhouse is a coastal city known for its busy port and petroleum industry, but also its two universities, and much more! With the local bus services (called First Aberdeen), comprehensive road network, and good national railway connections, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in one of the smaller surrounding towns such as Bielside or seaside gems Cove Bay and Stonehaven, which are roughly a 25-minute commute away from Aberdeen’s center.

Although Aberdeen has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Aberdeen, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
