Have been to St. Armand's many many times and no hurry to return. Very over priced food, clothes and shops. Once is really enough, no reason to go back.

If you visit Sarasota you must visit this place. Good restaurants, shops and cafeterias around a charming circle park. It is the tourist point in Sarasota.

We stay at Suntide on Ben Franklin drive, so the circle is a pleasant walk away. Some of the shops and restaurants are a little pretentious, but if you look you will find something for all. The easy going atmosphere is very welcome.

Located on beautiful Lido Key, "the Circle" is chock-full of enticing shops and dining opportunities. Everything from clothing, high-end to tee shirts, and jewelry, from trinkets to gorgeous gems, awaits your perusal. Accents for the home entice. Dining options are varied as well, some thing for every palate. The "hub" of the circle is a lovely green area, offering a... More

Not a good place to be unless you have "deep pockets". The traffic is horrible and everything is VERY overpriced. Just drive through and say you've done it.

There are so many wonderful stores and restaurants and all the sales clerk I dealt with was super helpful and accommodating which made for a very enjoyable day. Yes things can... More
