Stretching between Promenade des Anglais (which is why this infrastructural section is often defined as an extension of the Promenade) and Quai de Rauba Capeu, Quai des Etats Unis shares much of the profile of the celebrated Promenade des Anglais.

Initially called Quai du Midi, the street was built approximately at the same time with Promenade des Anglais (the early 19th century) and took its current name in 1917, in honoring the United States’ decision to join the Triple Entente in World War One.

This thoroughfare provides access to the beaches which stretch in east Nice. Just like the Promenade, it is lined with palm trees, blue lounge chairs and cycle paths. Several Velo Bleu bike stands can also be spotted along Quai des Etats Unis.

On top of that, Quai des Etats Unis runs parallel to Cours Saleya, the main pedestrian area of Vieux Nice, and it is located at a stone’s throw from the main tourist sights in east Nice: Opera de Nice, the Ponchettes Gallery, the Castle Hill and, generally the rich tourist patrimony of Vieux Nice. Plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars can also be spotted along Quai des Etats Unis.

By following Quai des Etats Unis, which falls nothing short of the leisure and tourist opportunities featured by Promenade des Anglais, visitors have the chance to sample some of the charm of east Nice and dive into discovering areas like Vieux Nice, Port de Nice and, why not, Mont Boron.
