Irvine, CA - The Last Pleasant College Town In Southern California

Irvine, with its lush landscapes, is well known for being home to one of the best University of California campuses. Compiled student and success ratings have stayed among the highest consistently. Prospective University of California students should research this school and would likely prefer it over the others. Because Irvine is a college town, the nightlife, bar and restaurant venue choices are plentiful and exciting. I live fairly close to Irvine and visit frequently. I am always in search of the best restaurants in the metro area of Los Angeles and there have been a couple in Irvine that stand out across the city. Yard House is a unique and friendly environment. Beer choices are endless and the food is fresh and delicious. Taiko House, featuring authentic Japanese cuisine, is sure to delight anyone. Generous helpings ensure that nobody leaves hungry. Staff and prices are great and the restaurant is immaculate. Those seeking to relocate to Irvine may be disappointed in the real estate prices of average houses. Despite the economic situation, housing prices have been continually hovering at high rates. Those who can afford the prices will not be disappointed, as the city of Irvine is a very strong and friendly community.
