I love Irvine. I've been living in the same house in Irvine for 18 years (since birth). I think it's an amazing place to raise a family or for anyone that isn't looking for a constant adrenaline rush. It's true that Irvine might not be the most exciting place, but it's an amazing place to live. The air quality is amazing (fresh air everywhere) and it's so peaceful but still close to everything you'd ever need. There's food from almost any ethnicity you can think of within a 15 minute drive and if you ever want to drive further, there's some pretty famous places only around 45 minutes away in LA. The city definitely has every day-to-day necessity and if you ever want to get some adrenaline pumping there are tons of options within an hour drive or less. I really love Irvine and I've committed to UCI so I'll be sticking around for at least 4 more years.

Community events are planned from time to time, however some neighbors are not friendly. Many seem uptight and don't bother engaging in conversation. The community is pretty pet friendly, many are dog and cat owners. The neighbors have lived in the area for many years.
Safe and friendly environment! Very clean, but has it's own bubble.
