St. Armands Circle Parking Lot, Sarasota
(4.3/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
An island with a misspelled name, St. Armands Circle Parking Lot was purchased by a Frenchman named St. Amand in the 19th century. His name was misspelled on land deeds, and that error became the name of the island. John Ringling, the circus magnate, purchased the land in 1917 and turned it into a residential and shopping area. Upon exploring, you'll discover that St. Armands Circle sits at the heart of the action, encompassed by shops, restaurants, and cafes with outdoor seating that allow you to enjoy the breeze over the water. Put St. Armands Circle Parking Lot into our Sarasota trip itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Vacationing was Sarasota, our hotel recommended this restaurant, WE WERE disappointed. Lovely restaurant, and pleasant decoration. I ordered the filet mignon pepper and mushrooms, the dish really well presented and tender meat, with a great sauce. My husband ordered Penne carbonara, still a great presentation, and salmon fresh and good. Home made dessert of fresh fruit cones a treat. The glass of wine affordable, value for money nothing to say, the French boss is very friendly
