This is a lovely place to spend a day or part of a day. Great variety of shops of good quality clothes,shoes children's clothes and accessories. Nice ice cream shop too. Something for everyone. Parking can be a problem as it gets very busy. Good eating places too. An experience.

If you are spending any time in Longboat Key or Sarasota, FL you will find some time to visit St. Armands Circle, the shopping "center". Lots of high and middle level shops, specializing in women's and casual clothing. Also, art, craft and novelty shops abound. Also, a few national stores (Chico, Soma, Black/White) and food shoppes (Starbucks, Kilwin's, Ben &... More

It's just one of the nicest places near Sarasota for shopping/beachgoing. Lido Beach nearby, but public parking limited. Lovely shops adorn the spoked wheel formation of the retail part of the village. Good restaurants, too, including Tommy Bahama's. You'll find the usual Kilwin's for fudge, Fresh Produce for clothes (so overpriced), but then there are lots of "mom and pop"... More

Lots of fun stores and eateries. Looking forward to trying some more tomorrow. Parking is a big issue but somehow we had the karma.

Although pretty pricey, the circle is filled with fun stores, outstanding restaurants and an interesting history. Sitting and having a drink outside makes for a very entertaining afternoon of people watching! People were friendly, dressed in gorgeous resort clothes and out for a fun time. We did not have any trouble parking, but I can see where it would fill... More

The way to a ladies heart is to shop. That you can do in St Armand Circle. You will find very interesting stores to browse. The stores are high end but no major chains are represented. There are mostly boutique type establishments. You can snack on gelato or sit down to a Spanish meal. The circle reminds me of Niagara-on-the-... More
