InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Nice

Hello to all Americans in Nice! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Nice? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Nice 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: Nice is not just a great destination for holidaymakers. The capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department is a sunny city known for its Mediterranean climate, the mix of French and Italian culture, its world-renowned Nice Jazz Festival, and much more! With the network of buses and trams run by Lignes d’Azur as well as SNCF long-haul trains, 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 and surrounding areas of Nice such as Fabron, Cimiez, or Villefrance-sur-Mer, which are just a short ride away from Nice’s center.

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