The Quai des Etats-Unis ( United States dock) is the name given in the 19th century to a lane along the easern shore of the Bay of Angels in Nice. It stretches from the Avenue des Phocéens to the Rauba-Capeù dock, at the foot of the Colline du Chateau (Caste Hill) .
The walkway terrace replaced the former defensive ramparts which were demolished by Louis XIV in 1706. The name originates from 1917 and was given by General Francois Goiran to celebrate the entry of the U.S. into the first World War.
While not as exciting as the Promenade des Anglais, there is still a lot going on here. It is a main route to get to Caste Hill, the I Love Nice sign and the port.
