Strolling at Armand Circle

Armand Circle is the center of attractions at Lido Beach. It is a traffic hub and center of commerce for the beach. The circle is named after St. Armand's Church, which lends its name and beauty to the elegant setting. The circle is an intersection of two main streets. The hub provides four blocks of exclusive shops, restaurants, and boutiques to visit. The items are unique and upscale, so bring your credit card. There are sidewalk cafes, elegant jewelry stores, art galleries, apparel shops, and more.

I visited during Christmastime. There were many lights and a beautifully decorated tree. Parking is scarce during busy time. I recommend you use the trolley system or visit at off-peak hours. You will spend hours enjoying what Armand Circle has to offer.
