Circuit Avenue is great to stroll, with coffee shops, ice cream parlors, souvenir shops, all different kinds of restaurants (from diner to upscale).

A 100 x classier version of touristy New England vacation towns. Unique restaurants and mom and pop shops. Absolutely no chains businesses here. Although its a vacation town, it still has the small town business appeal to it which was nice to see...Love this part of the island!

Circuit Avenue has seen some unhappy changes but all in all it's still a shopping Mecca. The Flying Horses( the oldest carousel in the USA) is still up & running & hasn't changed

Affordable (compared to Edgartown) and touristy (but in a lighthearted and fun way), Circuit Avenue allowed us access to Martha's Vineyard everything: t-shirts, mugs, and glasses.

We thought we were early at 8:30am on a Saturday morning but Circuit Avenue was already bustling with Ocean sounds, breakfast cooking smells, and cars slowly winding through an island traffic jam. Families, singles, and other odd groups juggling for a seat at one of the many dining choices. Great early morning experience.

Typical souvenier shop stores with t-shirts, and the usual items with a few restaurants and bars to check out. It was not very New Englandy or tropical, we preferred the shopping and ambience at Edgartown

Circuit Ave is the heart of Oak Bluffs. Here you find many shops and restaurants. It is fun just to walk along and just watch all the excitement. Get Ben & Bills ice cream!!!

Make sure to take a stroll down and up Circuit Ave and see all the shops and restaurants! Don't forget to see the oldest Carousel in the United States.

Oak Bluffs is a fun and lively town with lots of bars and restaurants along the harbor and on Circuit Avenue. Definitely a great place for a day trip or a week!
