Pretty location with lots of shops, some higher end but a good variety, I liked the ice cream shop and lunch at Colombia Restaurant. Beach stores to fancier decoration type stores. I was happy and my wife was happy.

Great shop and dinning. From casual to fine dinning. The Blue Dalpine was our favorite. Shopping much more than T shirt shops. Nice art and gifts. s

Very pedestrian friendly, easy access to the beach and tons and tons of places to eat or grab a quick drink. Some nice shops and not all geared to the T-shirt Tourist. Parking is not difficult but if you do remember need to pay attention to which branch off the circle you parked.

We had a wonderful time eating at Shore and walking through all the shoppes. This is a very nice area to explore. It is more older kid/adult friendly. There are many different shoppes and restaurants. A definite must see.

St. Armand's Circle has it all - unique shops, lots of restaurants, plenty of free parking and o ly steps away from the beach. If you're in or near Sarasota, this is a great spot to spend a day of leisure.

Old Florida beach community at its best. Decent shopping, with no chain restaurants or franchises. Nice and casual, and close to the beach. Love it!

Everything you could want for upscale shopping and dining. A great selection for dining .. family to elegant . I would say leave early to avoid the traffic if there is an event that day. You could be on the bridge for hours waiting to get there. The Blue dolphin is fun and good for breakfast.
