When in Oak Bluffs, Circuit Ave. is the heartbeat. while not that long in distance, it is filled with virtually everything from restaurants, clothing shops, supermarket, liquor store, music store, bakeries, an arcade and good old-fashioned tourist shops. And there is more to do and see on the adjacent street! There are several alley accesses the tiny gingerbread cottages surrounding... More

Nice shops. Fantastic places to eat. Visit Erik at the Oak Bluffs Inn and ask if he has vacancies. Great B&B!

Walking down Circuit avenue can seem very touristy but there are some fun restaurants and shops. It's always something a first timer will enjoy on Martha's Vineyard. It's one of the three main towns with a large selection of shops

I have been going to Martha's Vineyard, specifically Oak Bluffs, for the last 20 years. My family has a house in Oak Bluffs and Circuit Avenue is where everything is located around. The campground main entrance is off of Circuit Avenue. The tabernacle is at the foot of Circuit. There are many mainstay restaurants on Circuit avenue including Linda Jeans,... More

we had a great time walking and shopping down Circuit Ave. Bill and Bens Chocolate Emporium and Martha's Vineyard Chowder Company are great. And the World's Oldest Carousel in the Flying Horse.

As other reviewers have noted, Circuit Ave. has all kinds of shops and restaurants. Since we visited in September, we did not have to fight the summer crowds. We enjoyed walking around checking out the various stores and restaurants. They had ice cream parlors (some that also offered soup and sandwiches), coffee shops, pricey restaurants, and places for the budget... More

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!
