Create an itinerary including St. Armands Circle
An island with a misspelled name, St. Armands Circle 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.
