|There is a large
social life in America depending on where you are of course, if
in a quiet town or county it can often be hard to have a social
life especially if you are new to the area and do not know
One of the biggest problems for under 21s in the States is
not being able to go to night clubs and bars to meet people, not
having youth clubs and under 21 night clubs that are available
in the uk. In the USA you can drive at the age of 16 though so
you can visit friends and such.
The biggest social gatherings that occurs in areas that are
not cities, in the states are fairs, occasions and sports
When you turn over 21 in America there is plenty a social
life in the cities but still not much in country and farming
areas, new Orleans and Las Vegas are popular party spots in the
US with a large array of night clubs, bars and casinos to
Living in England I have found it hard to meet people and
make friends when visiting America and being the tender age of
19 it means I cant go out and meet people, but then I do stay
in a farming town when I visit America.
American people have many friends but most are met through
work, school, friends of friends you get the idea.
I have been to New Orleans also
known as "The Big Easy" and can honestly say I have never
been anywhere where everyone is really up for a good time and a
laugh, it has to be one of my favorite parts of America the
atmosphere is unbelievable.
Las Vegas is also good but a lot of Vegas is about the
casinos but still plenty of good night clubs and bars. The same
goes for gambling on the age restriction there though as you
have to be twenty one although the many of the shows are for all
age gaps and suit the kids down to the ground.
|The social life in the uk is good,
there are endless amounts of nightclubs and pubs as well as:
- Social clubs
- Youth Groups
- Under 18 Night clubs (for those who cant drink)
- Clubs of all kind
You can make friends pretty much anywhere in England, it is a
lot better social life for children in Britain they can make
friends out side of school simply by attending youth clubs or
just walking down there local park, but everything is so close
together so transport is not always essential, there is always
plenty for kids to do in England.
The nightclubs are always full of friendly people some not
always so friendly but the majority are, London is a popular
place to go out and party along with Bournemouth, Brighton and
Clubbing in the U.K. is, as you might expect, not all that
different from clubbing in the U.S.A. or most places else. It
still involves people waiting too long in lines (or queues, as
they are called here) paying too much for alcohol, listening to
music so loud you canít here the person next to you and trying
to not look like youíre too self-conscious to dance.
But there are few things travelers looking for club action
should be aware of. British beer is significantly stronger
than American beer. Knocking back a few Carlings will have a
much stronger effect (i.e. get you wasted much quicker) that
knocking back a few Bud. Which might be just what youíre looking
for, but just be careful you donít make yourself sick or take
yourself out of the party too quickly.
Many drinks are served, sometimes in a cocktail and sometimes
pre-mixed, with an energy soda named Red Bull (or some knock off
thereof.) These drinks taste similar to Mountain Dew (which is
all but impossible to find here, by the way.) and do give quite
the hyperactive sugar boost. Also, since the drink is extremely
caffeine-loaded, it will also thin your blood and make whatever
liquor youíre enjoying it with (almost always vodka) hit you
much faster and stronger.
If you only go to one club in the UK let it be slinky, the
best club I have ever been to, everyone is friendly no trouble at
all, the best atmosphere you will ever find in a lifetime.
