InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Bordeaux

Hello to all Americans in Bordeaux! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Bordeaux? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Bordeaux 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: Bordeaux is a dynamic city and the world capital of wine. The city in Southwestern France is a port city known for its charming cafés, gardens, and museums, lively university community, wide selection of wines, divine cuisine, and much more! With the train and bus services, 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 nearby towns or villages, which are often just an easy commute away from Bordeaux’s center.

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