Known as a hangout spot for the young teenage and adult crowd, the area is full of small specialty shops, good eats and restaurants to hang out or just be seen in. Near a cozy row of Gingerbread houses, Circuit Avenue offers excitement, shopping and fun, just a few yards from the water.

I love just walking around the Circuit. The shops have reasonably priced goods and you can find a huge variety of items. Kids seem to enjoy hanging out in the evening in this pretty safe environment.

Leave yourself plenty of time for all the cute and unique shops and restaurants on Circuit Avenue because it is very crowded.

This is one of the only areas where you can shop in Oaks Bluff. I recommend you go early before the crowds hit. Otherwise stores and street is crowded.

Where downtown Boston meets MV. The street is stuffed with eateries, restaurants, coffee shops, souvenirs, boutiques, markets, etc. Everything you can think of needing to purchase on an island is located on this 5 block stretch of cramped-ness.

Hopping a night with college kids looking for a night of fun. Classic honky tonk atmosphere at night. Back door donuts is fun to do a least once. Easy acess to the campgrounds for a... More

So beautiful and quaint! The shops on the street were a great find and had many treasures. We walked through a path to find dozens of "gingerbread" houses, multi-colored and amazing!
