InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Cannes

Hello to all Americans in Cannes! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Cannes? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Cannes 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: Cannes sparkles with glitz and glamour, offering a lot for expats. The city located on the French Riviera is a glamorous city known for its association with the rich and famous, its luxury hotels and restaurants, being the host of several prominent conferences and festivals, and much more! With the bus system and road links, 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 suburbs of Cannes, which are just a short journey away from Cannes’s center.

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