Lots of stores, not all touristy. Several igh-end jewelry stores. Lots of clothing stores at all price points, for every family member. Also restaurants, some quite good, Like Fin & Claw (seafood), Cafe L'Europe (continental) and Columbia (Cuban.) Many ice cream places. Traffic moves slowly because cars must stop when pedestrians step onto a crosswalk. Parking is widely available, with several large free parking lots in back of all the stores, and street parking. Tourists live it -- so do the locals!

St. Armands is a wonderful place for wealthy couples without kids who want to shop and eat well. If that's not you, don't bother.
