I love the mexican restaurant here and the peanut store. You should check this place and I promise you, that you will keep on coming back to this place. This year I went to St. Armands circle 3 times already. And it was fun! By the way, It's only less than 15 minutes to Lido beach from St. Armands circle.

We live close so go there often. Several restaurants, ice cream places, great for people watching. There are a few different store such as the Garden Argosy that are fun to browse for interesting gifts. No public restrooms but a couple places have them for customers.

St. Armand's Circle great for a stroll, boutique hopping and an afternoon bite just watching passersby. It's nice and relaxing and so close by. Suzanne D.

Someone told us about the great shopping here so we thought we would give it a try. There are so many shops that we hardly made a dent but the ones we did go in were very nice, mostly out of our price range. Now that I am back home I wish i would have planned better and researched the... More

Went to St. Armands Circle at dinner time. Plenty of free parking lots close to the action. We are here during slow season, so it may be crazy in peak. Lots of little shops for whatever you might be looking to buy. Bring your wallet, it is all pretty pricey!

There is a lot in this popular traffic circle. They call it the "gem of Sarasota," and they're right. Shopping is very good and you'll find many great dining experiences. Also look for special events, such as an art and craft show in the middle park. Parking is challenging but there is s big parking lot adjacent to the circle.

This is the place where you can get the feeling of Sarasota! Stop for a drink or something to eat or an ice-cream! Especially when you go to spend a day at the Lido beach, which is really close...

Beautiful palm trees, outdoor restaurants, exclusive shops and boutiques surrounded by water. Definitely a feast for the eyes and senses. If you're in the area you may not want to miss the opportunity to visit St. Armands Circle. A word of caution, the evening hours can be extremely busy and chaotic.
