Let's Meetup!

If you're new in the area (any area), looking for activity partners, hungry to connect with new people or just want to get out and have some fun, is a great resource. Meetup provides an easy way to find people doing interesting things, who are looking for others to join in. Meetup is open to anyone and it's global...meaning there are Meetup groups and activities all over the world. ''Neighbors meeting up to learn something, do something, share something'' is their slogan.

Meetup groups in the Provence/Cote d'Azur area include: 

The Avignon Expat Group

Aix-En-Provence Expat Meetup Group

The Marseille International Meetup Association

Talk to Me Marseille (A Language Exchange Meetup)

Hangout in Nice

The Nice Open Coffee Meetup

Nice/Cannes/Antibes/Monaco New In Town, Expat or Local

Monte Carlo Dinners for Singles

Cote d'Azur Women in Yoga

Parlez Francais a Nice

The Nice Anglophone Book Club

Polyglot Club Multi-Lingual Mingle on the Riviera

Montpellier Internationals

Montpellier Rando & Plein Air, Hiking & Outdoors Group

The French American Center Meeting Group Montpellier

If you're up in Paris, you'll find hundreds of Meetup groups including Expats Paris, American Expats in Paris, Internationals in Paris, The Paris New in Town Meetup Group, the Paris Photography Meetup Group, the Paris Writers Group, Design Meetup Paris...and many more.

If you're a Francophile living outside France, just input your city to see what's available. I did a very quick search and found the Chicago French Conversation Group, Cooking French and International in Silicon ValleyBay Area Petanque Players, Interfrench Boston, New York French Language and Culture Lovers, the French Club of Miami Beach, French Happy'ritif After Work in Sydney and Francophones de name just a few. And there are thousands of groups that have nothing to do with France.

All you have to do is create a quick profile and sign up for the groups that interest you. Then you'll start receiving updates about upcoming activities. You can also start a Meetup group of your own...or search the boards to find out what's happening on any particular day.
