In my family we all love the Circle, we love the shopping and we have our favorite place for breakfast, the Dolphin. It is so chic and so very Floridian, can't wait to visit again. Love the atmosphere.

There is nowhere else like St Armand's Circle. A great place to shop, stroll, window shop, and eat. Lots of events during the year, I particularly like the shows by local artists.

Love this part of Sarasota, the shopping prices are expensive but it's such a lovely area to walk around, browse and dine and nearby Lido Beach is gorgeous. Well worth a visit!

Great shops and restaurants. My favorite by far is the Columbia with it's unique Cuban/Spanish cuisine and friendly staff. Spent a few hours walking around this area. You will love it !

St. Armands Circle shops have a lot of variety; trendy boutiques, kitschy knick-knacks, good food and lush landscaping. I love the Wyland art gallery and Renee's boutique.

A great and compact area for a walk and the accompanying shopping. We found the shopkeepers friendly and helpful. Along with a variety of stores and restaurants, there is something here for everyone. Free parking.

I hate to shop, but I love shopping the circle. And the dining is wonderful too! We walk and shop the Circle daily when staying at Lido Beach Resort. Thank goodness some things never change.
