I had heard so much about St Armands Circle that perhaps all the hype led to a little disappointment. We went there, walked around, went into a few shops, some with unique merchandise.. The shops closed earlier than anticipated, maybe because it is summer. There are loads of restaurants. Who knows, maybe I was expecting to much since I live... More

This delightful place was wonderful to visit. From delicious food at several restaurants, very dog friendly and one of the places had sugar free gelato! It was even better than the regular gelato.

Loved the uniqueness of these shops and there were enough of them. Couldn't do all of them in one day so we'll have to go back again someday. Only thing is that a lot of them close earlier in the evening.

Pricey shops and restaurants, and hard to find a parking place during the winter months, but still fun to visit.

This is interesting because of the shoping and restaurant choices. It is only a block fron the gulf and beaches. A good day to visit is during the summer weekday. The weekends are busy and a weekend during the Winter season is not a happy plase to be if you dont like vast crowds.
