Walking the Circle is always a Wonderful day to remember

It's been a while since I've made the time to enjoy the circle. The shops, the food, the people - such a lovely way to spend an afternoon!

To start, there is a lot of parking available, either on the traffic circle or in lots right off of it. There is a very good array of stores and I found the place to be very nice, interesting, and had... More

We visited after seeing the Ringling museum and ate in a restaurant there. The circle itself is nice and shady and the walk around interesting but the best part is the hustle and bustle with all the shops and restaurants

We shopped after dinner and it was so fun. Many specialty stores, fun store names and most had very helpful employees. You can eat, shop and people watch for hours. If you are in the area, go there

The shops are also everything you could imagine from children's to women's to knick knacks to shoes and art work. It is separated into 4 quadrants so it is... More

Frankly, this is the place to go in Sarasota County for a relaxing evening if you want to do some shopping and eating. My personal routine is usually to start at Columbia Restaurant. You cannot go wrong with any of the food there. It is usually packed to the gills however. I've been eating here religiously for 27 of my... More
