Izmir is Turkey 's largest cities and a major port. The city is located on Turkey 's west coast along the Aegean Sea, 150 miles south of the Dardanelles, the strait that divides Europe and Asia. Since there is no US base here, almost 1,700 members of the American military community including family members, live and work alongside the Turkish population. Base functions are located mostly in the Alsancak area of Izmir in 27 buildings intermingled with civilian offices and shops.

One of Turkey 's major seaports, second only to Istanbul, Izmir is a major outlet for a rich agricultural region where much of Turkey 's tobacco and fruits are grown. In addition, the port handles much of Turkey 's cotton, chromium and olive exports.

If Izmir itself is little short on tourist attractions, it sure makes up for it with world-famous tourist sites like the ancient city of Ephesus within easy reach of a day trip, plus popular distractions such as good shopping, great value waterfront restaurants and welcoming bars. You'll also receive a warm welcome from the 741st Air Base Squadron based here in Izmir. Sixth Fleet personnel can use the base facilities downtown, sports facilities out at Bayrakli Park, and the MWR can help you out on the sightseeing front, too.
