Did you know that there are 166,291 people living in the US who were born in France?

We did some research to find out as much as we could about French expats here in the US. We think we found some pretty interesting stuff.

It’s no surprise that New York is home to the largest concentration of French expats, however the French also seem to have an affinity for warm weather and beautiful beaches. In fact, if you happen to walk around Miami Beach, 1 in 65 people you encounter were born in France.

Pulling in data from over 150,000 social media profiles, we were able to determine just what interests French expats living the US.

They prefer Walmart to Carrefour, Louis Vuitton to Michael Kors and House to the hit French tv show Bref. Perhaps most surprisingly, they prefer Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton, albeit perhaps for entertainment value as much as anything else.

Take a look further down to see what else we found!
