A jewel on the Californian coast, truly like no other. The weather is beautiful 24/7/360, the people are decent, the ocean and the Santa Ynez mountains surrounding it are beyond words.
Come see it before its too late, though. Its being invaded by developers, and the average house price is near a million dollars. Affordable housing is used as an excuse to put in large ugly apartment buildings. While SB still has the "Small Town" feel, its not going to be there for long.
Oh yeah, the mission. If you only see one mission in your life, see the Santa Barbara mission. Its incredible.
Santa Barbara. Its the last beautiful city in California.
an almost too-good-to-be-true college student playground nestled in fabulous santa barbara where the apartments are absolute shit yet $650/mo to share a room. at night, IV crawls with thousands of piss-drunk students, all walking from house to house sucking up the greater half of california's vodka supply. sadly, neartly half of these party-goers are arrested by the IV foot patrol for DIPs. isla vista is an overall awesome place to spend your college years.
UCSB student: "yes, i live in isla vista."
student's grandmother: GASP!!
student's friends: "let's go there and get wasted."
A magical place where it is rumored that learning takes place, although to those who enter it is often described differently afterward, as a beatiful land in which beer flows in amber currents next to a golden pasture, where virgins lie naked with gentle smiles upon their calm, inviting faces; but more precisely, a Shangri-La rite of passage into adulthood which involves rampant consumption of alcoholic beverages, flagrant and promiscuous sexual behavior, and a general and fundamental disregard for any form of responsibility by its habitants.
Thank you sir, may I have another?
the abbreviation of Isla Vista, the small college community connected to UC Santa Barbara, one of the top 10 party schools.
I went to a crazy party in IV last weekend and got hella
Something I never get invited to.
There was a party last night, but I wasn't invited.
When you have to hold on to the grass to keep from falling off the earth.
arrrrrrggggg! (like a pirate but in more pain)
The reason I get up in the morning and the reason I pass out at night.
Located in Isla Vista, it's where all the best parties go down at UC Santa Barbara.
Also known as "DP" for short.
"Where you thinking about going tonight?"
"My friend's got a house on del playa."
What kind of moron are you that you look up sex in the urban dictionary?
Looking up sex??? Seriously, get off now before I turn off the internet.
