Isla Vista, more commonly known as IV,
is a small college town outside of UCSB. You will quickly learn that IV has its own culture and is a huge part of the UCSB community. Isla Vista is home to many UCSB students, awesome restaurants, coffee shops, and of course our beautiful beach. When you walk down the streets
of IV, you’ll find yourself surrounded by bike traffic as students rush to class or as they return from class, the sound of laughter and conversation, the smell of amazing food, and the feeling of infinite youth. Even if you don’t live in
IV, you might find yourself spending a lot of time there. Some of the most popular restaurants in Isla Vista include: Free Birds, Hana Kitchen, the IV Deli Market, Woodstock’s Pizza, & Blenders. But almost any restaurant you go to in IV is pretty popular and appetizing.
