All stores and layout of circle is great, except all traffic goes through circle and there are great traffic problems. A better traffic pattern should have been designed. Parking is a problem. Luckily, we could walk.

A very popular place which attracts plenty of locals, visitors, and tourists alike. A really good place to dine, have a coffee, have a ice cream, shop or window view, people watch, or just stroll around and take in the atmosphere. A stylish area which really looks the part for this corner of Sarasota.

St. Armand's Circle is a very nice destination for travelers who are seeking entertainment and a refined shopping experience. The place has a circle in the middle surrounded by 4 quadrants, each carrying a different color theme. It offers a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, boutique shops and galleries. Even for those who are not interested in shopping, window shopping is a great experience as you get to watch the artists works of art, paintings, and souvenirs. It is a walking distance from the beach, and there is a parking nearby. The neighborhood is also full of nice houses and I am sure you will enjoy driving by to appreciate the different designs.
