St. Armands Circle is just about a mile from a timeshare I visit every summer. You can spend a lot or a little, or none and just enjoy the great people-watching. We never leave without a few meals at the Blue Dolphin (same great wait staff for many years) and Cha Cha Coconuts (at Cha Chas, try to get one... More

St. Armand's is a wonderful area with shopping and restaurants. Good for a drink or maybe some ice cream. And the beach is just a short walk away.

The area is busy and some enjoyable browsable shops. I arrived after coffee and looked in vain for a public restroom usually found at most tourist locations. Unfortunately the provision of this most basic of public services has been neglected and i choose to not return. A somewhat backward tourist trap.

Has to be on the top of any list of places to visit in Sarasota. It all starts with the drive across the bridge from the mainland to the key. The Circle has a multitude of shops offering shabby to chic. Restaurants aplenty, but in season the wait can be painfully long. Try booking ahead, if at all possible -... More

St. Armand's Circle is a quaint, upscale, stylish venue for tourists and locals alike. Shops with various price points abound and there seems to always be a good deal, or two, or more, to be found. Shopowners are warm and friendly by nature and make all feel welcome. There are any number of excellent restaurants to be found and the... More

All stores minus a couple are high end boutiques. Not very affordable. But this is where the rich are seen and shop. Restaurants are excellent but very expensive. Fun day to browse and window shop

St. Armands Circle is a great day out. The stores include some of the latest fashions. Places like Tommy Bahama and others carry inventory you will not find in any of the typical malls across Florida. After a day od shopping I recommend a nice lunch or dinner of Paella at Columbia Resturant The restaurant also has a fantastic and... More
