SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - It was almost called “Ringling Isles.” But the Florida real estate bust in 1928 crushed that idea. So we call it “St Armands Circle,” named after the man who first owned it, with a little typo in his name!

Now we know it as the destination for high-end shops and great restaurants, just like John Ringling’s dreamed of. And a high-end hotel may be coming in the future!
