St. Armands circle is an island in the Sarasota Bay. It is very organized with a roundabout in the center. There are 4 quadrants designated by colors with many restaurants, clothing stores, and souviner shops, The restaurants range from quick economical dining to fine dining. The clothing stores has occupied my wife several tiimes.

Lots of shops, good food. Plenty to see. Traffic is very busy, hard to find parking close to the circle. Very friendly.

Great way to spend an evening after dinner. Walked around, found the shops we were interested in and enjoyed a fun time with the family. A very relaxing time at night.

If your a local or not, this place is great for a stroll with friends, to grab some good food at one of the restaurants or do a little window shopping!

St Armand's is a great place to visit especially if you like to shop! There is also a wonderful variety of restaurants, varying in ethnicity and cost. So many to choose from; it would take awhile to go through them all! Parking is a challenge but worth the visit.

St Armands is always a good stop. Plenty of shops and dining options. Might be boring for young teens and under but there is no lack of places to poke your head into.
