From what i see at least the Americans are more cool and dont bother about whether they are seen as party animals or not..

The Europeans and Britains seem to be more defensive...

So East Coast and west coast people who parties harder ?
In the United States, people tend to have this regional competition mentality which can make them biased in favor of where they live.

But based on surveys and things like that, cities like Las Vegas, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and New Orleans often rank high as "party" cities.

Mid-June is a good time to visit New York City. However, you can expect it to get hot and humid around that time.

In reality, there's absolutely no way to compare something like this.
It's not like it's a great compliment or a great insult and something to argue over. My personal experience though is that Brits are much more likely to let their hair down. Australians and Irish would be the same. Americans I've encountered have a bit more restraint which I think is a positive thing not a negative. It's also of note that in most US states people can't legally drink until they are 21 years unlike the UK where it is 18.

by "in general" i'm guessing you mean what you see on American TV shows and Movies.. yeah.. its not always like that.

Brits have a reputation all over Europe for partying a bit TOO hard..

No I don't think so. I think you are reading too much into it. As I've said it is not like it is something to argue over or something particularly positive. I don't look on it as particularly positive. To me party hard means being a bit excessive and too much alcohol and other substances. I don't know if that is what you were implying by your question?

So you're not basing it on actual experience then? TV and movies don't actually show reality.

In the UK it is legal for 16+ yo kids to drink wine, cider and beer, but illegal to buy.

British girls are wild I tell ya. There was this 16 year old girl from Sudbury who friended me on facebook and then later invited me to go tripping on acid with her.

I said "wow" but I think I would lose it after doing something like that.

Thanks. I've just looked it up and other European countries are similar with 16 for wine, cider and beer. I didn't realise it was that young.
