A trip to St. Armands Circle is a must where more shops and restaurants are awaiting your enjoyment. The bazaar around the circle and a beautiful central park add to the shopping experience with an enchanted atmosphere all of its own. Then, you can take a break from your shopping journey to indulge in the finest steak, seafood and exotic tropical dishes around.

If a more cultural shopping experience is your taste, take a turn down historic Palm Avenue especially on the first Friday of the month when strolling minstrels send the sounds of sweet music into the air. Browse the many shops for paintings, glassware, art and more as your spirits are lifted by the music. You can find treasures on the street in the shops any day as most shops are open 7 days a week. Walking through the art galleries scattered along the way is a magical experience for all.

Perhaps an orchid would the perfect choice.
