InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Alexandria

Hello to all Americans in Alexandria! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Alexandria? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Alexandria 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: life in Alexandria will never be boring. The port city is a coastal city known for being a popular tourist destination as well as industrial and economic center, its famous libraries (both ancient and modern), and much more! With the comprehensive public transit network of (at times quite slow) trams and mashrū' (shared minibuses), 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 the neighborhoods along the coast, such as Kafr Abdou, Roshdy, or Elshatby, which are not too far away from Alexandria’s center.

Although Alexandria 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 Alexandria, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
