InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Valencia

Hello to all Americans in Valencia! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Valencia? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Valencia 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: Valencia is unlike any other Spanish city. The third-largest city in Spain is a vibrant city known for its thriving culture, authentic paella dish, vibrant nightlife, impressive architecture, and much more! With the buses, metro, and tram lines, 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 El Cabanyal or Benimaclet, for example, which are less than 20 minutes away from Valencia’s center.

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