InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Bristol

Hello to all Americans in Bristol! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Bristol? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Bristol 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: Bristol is a vibrant and diverse city steeped in both history and culture. The southwestern city is a very diverse city known for its thriving music scene, popular street-art culture, green spaces, museums, diverse nightlife, and much more! With the network of trains and buses as well as the park-and-ride system into the city center, 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 residential areas such as Clifton or Bedminster, for example , which are less than half an hour away from Bristol’s center.

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