This is a great little shopping,eating, and drinking area with something for everyone. It is incredibly alive and beautiful. Plan on some time here if you are in the area. Lotsa time.

Free parking, although difficult to come by during high traffic times like a beautiful day on a saturday or sunday morning.
Great restaurants ranging from lower end to high end pricing. A KILWINS!! Walking distance from the beach, very good place to have a couple drinks before or after the beach. Lido Key is an awesome beach!

This Circle is ideal for taking friends for an afternoon. Plenty of stores with beautiful items and wares including free sampling of foods. We got free parking quickly on the street and walked the entire circle. This is the place to shop for unique quality items - simply tons of beautiful one-of-a-kind clothing. We had lunch at a local restaurant's upper deck. And.... other visitors are very chatty about the circle offerings. I'd love to actually live in this neighborhood, so festive !

IT is exactly as its name suggsts - a circle. You start at point a and will eventually end up right back at the same spot. The shopping is endless and great deals - not the typical junky touristy stuff you find. Service on the patio restaurants and pubs is exceptional.

This place is nice if you want to walk around and window shop but a bit pricey for me. I found an amazing jewelry store here but I can't remeber the name :s It was full of very nice pieces and I bought a bracelet that I saw elsewhere for double the price - I wosh I could remeber the name!!!! Anyway that was the only store worth going into really.

I can't believe that there are no public bathrooms here! We used the restroom at the Crab & Fin restaurant as it was right inside the doorway so no one would see someone off the street go in but there is no where else to go - definitely made the trip here shorter.
