Shoppers paradise with avenues going to Bradenton or downtown Most of the Florida brands are there But you can find a bunch of cute specialties shop Surrounded by restaurants and coffee to have a brake during shopping you can spend a whole day there

I have been to St. Armands Circle many times through the years. It's a wonderful place to visit and shop, well known for its beauty and elegant surroundings. There are many fine restaurants, my two favorites being the "Columbia" serving the best in Spanish food; their Mojito is wonderful and the "Crab & Fin" which serves a delicious crab cake... More

Make sure that what you buy is what you want.....they do not tell you, but if you read your receipt (and very few people do), they do not give you a REFUND! They only give you store credit up to 30 days of return.

Awesome restaurants and shops! Upscale shopping just steps from Lido Key Beach. The monuments that surrounds the circle is also interesting for those who love history too! You can shop and eat all day and night....what could be better?

Not sure what everyone sees in the Circle, maybe St. Armand's is glorified because there is little or nothing to do in the town of Sarasota. The shops cater to tourists and there isn't anything that's new or different. In the evening everyone in the area comes out and gets ice cream and walks around. Most shops are open late... More

Parking is often difficult, some gift shops are worthwhile. Redeeming is the Gulf nearby. It is mostly a tourist stop. Locals don't go there often.

Quite pricey, both stores and restaurants, especially dinner - great place to walk around - very close to Lido Beach.
