St. Armands Circle is a great place to stop by when looking for the different and odd stores. Each store here is different and has so many options of items to look at and brouse. They also have a number of restaurants that are fun or great places to eat at. You could spend a month trying them all.

I try to get here about once a year. Items for sale and food tend to be on the expensive side. The main shopping area is a circle that be completed rather quickly. Parking is limited so look to the side streets.

It is open air shopping, so unless you are a fan of the heat of the day I'd avoid it during the summer unless it is in the evening. It is fun to stroll and look at the unique shops and grab a bite to eat! If we are in the area we like to stop by!

I've bought shoes, sweets, tablecloths and toys on and around St. Armand's Circle. Clothes and souvenirs are also available. This type of place is so much more enjoyable to me than a mall (they are the same everywhere)!

St. Armand's circle is a fun spot in August or September, but very crowded during winter and spring. There are a lot of high end, designer shops. Mixed in with artsy boutiques. The food, for the most part is over priced and not very good. The exception being the Crab and Fin.
