We love St. Armands Circle! It is very charming with lots of shopping and restaurants. There are a number of local boutiques and not a lot of chain stores which is great!

We were there for a long time, but barely even shopped. I would go there again if I was going to buy a lot of candy from the stores, the rest I barely even remember.

Built by the Ringling family in the shape of a circus. Lovely shops, restaurants and bars and very nice people in the shops. Very enjoyable stop-over (we went 4 times).

Fun way to spend an afternoon. Beautiful shops and delicious restuarants though have only tried a few. My favorite restuarant for dinner or fancy lunch is Cafe Europa...a little pricy but fabulous. My biggest objection to this area is restrooms! Sound funny but you can spend the day here and that is difficult if no restrooms available except to restuarant... More

Filled with fun tourist-y shops but also nice clothing stores. Good for walking around during sunset times when it isn't too hot out.

Nice place to walk around. There are many shops, restaurants and ice cream shops. The later you go it seems to get crowded. There is a a park in the middle that has memorials in tribute to many circus members. Very nice and quaint village.
