The circle is touristy, but fun. We found parking easily, enjoyed a great meal, sampled the ice cream stores & even found gluten-free ice cream! We browsed & went into some of the stores too. We liked it all! There are times the traffic is bad.

If you're in the area and want to stroll, shop, and/or eat, visit St Armand's. The restaurant choices are endless and no "chains" here, just great food and ambience. The shops are outstanding, from local merchandise to high end clothing. Stop for an ice cream or just sit a bit and relax.

Nice place to visit one time, not a great selection of stores, but a very pretty circle to walk around. The traffic here can be crazy, try to visit in the morning.

St. Armands and the surrounding area is a perfect place to spend a day out, especially if you are visiting the area. With numerous up scale shopping stores, ice cream parlors, specialty shops, and restaurants it has something for everyone. With quick and easy access to Lido Beach and Mote Aquarium, St. Armands is a nice place to stop by... More

Actually went down for an art show that was being held in St. Armands Circle... but we did go through some of the shops. It's a fun place to people watch and look for deals and leisurely stroll.

Was here last week with some friends who were on vacation from up north. Always nice to showcase our weather in January. Had lunch in an open air restaurant. Even though it was cold here, 68, their home weather was 36. Nice place to walk and take in the shops and to people watch. Various restaurants with a range of... More
