There is very limited parking and very limited shops. Not at all what we expected based on other reviews. The statues are the best part of the area

Great spot for dinner, shopping, and strolling! Very nice area where everyone congregates to come enjoy the beach area. It’s a perfect circle with a park in the middle and all the “fingers” have shops and restaurants. Enjoy! You can’t go wrong here

Lots to do on St Armand Circle, dining, shopping boutiques, landscaping is lunch and beautiful with concrete benches tucked in. I would have liked to spend more time here. Had a late lunch at Shore. Delicious!

The only casualty is and will be parking at the circle. New garages are being built to ease congestion. Many great restaurants. Never had Cuban? Definitely tour the Colombian restaurant
