This is a place geared towards tourist. Very crowded and expensive. Parking can be tuff. But if you're on vacation its place to spend a few hours. There are much better places to shop and eat, check TripAdvisor.

Too many restaurants to count and shops to visit. While it was crowded it was still walker friendly. Several good ice cream shops. Almost too many food choices. Worth several more visits. We chose a Greek restaurant that we have reviewed separately. Then a pleasant evening stroll.

Armand Circle is worth a visit for a couple of hours pottering. Always happy to go shopping in Lilly P. Range of different restaurants and a couple of good ice cream shops.

Fantastic place to wander around with plenty of food options. Sales people in the stores are friendly but beware the hard sell, it seems to be everywhere. It's still a pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon.

Spent hours here in the spring. We could have walked around all day. Stores do keep the AC cranked but we couldn't wait to finish the loop and get back in the car.

We were a group of 9 ladies out to have a girls day out, no hubbies or children! What a GREAT place to window shop, get souvenirs, have lunch, and just enjoy each other!

St. Armands Circle is no longer the fun place we remember from years past. It's showing its age and has mediocre shops geared for tourists. The Columbia Restaurant is still fun, but a.s a whole, not worth the trip to St. Armands. We found the Historic Arts District more upscale

We loved going to St. Armand's in the evening. It is a beautiful shopping area. The shops are more boutiques, which made it nice to find some great gifts. It's a really fun atmosphere with lots of food options. Can't wait to go back!
