Parking St Armands Circle

Noticed over Memorial Day the 3 hour limit for parking--was not sure if that applied to Holidays--we will be down again for July 4th and was just wondering if that applies to parking on Holidays. Its just hard to be on the beach and to try to move your car every couple of hours--the signs don't say anything about Holidays.

The public beach parking lot didn't have a limit ... did that change?

I don't think it changed. I've never had trouble parking there.

Here are the rules that went into effect for St. Armands Circle in 2012:

If you are going to the beach for the day (or more than 3 hours), you can park at the Lido Key Beach Public Parking Lot by the beach. St. Armands merchants want people to be able to shop and have a place to park.

We found it impossible to park one Friday evening at St Armands when we were there last May. No public holidays that day!!

Weekends can get a little difficult for parking right on the circle in front of the shops and restaurants. However there are some nice large parking lots behind many of the stores that don't fill up.
