All around fun and beautiful scenic walk. Of course parking is a gamble IF you have a car, but I believe I have a parking angel who always has a reserved spot for me and my family ;-)

Circuit Ave. has everything that you can imagine either needing or wanting on Martha's Vineyard.

This street is the main drag of Oak Bluffs shopping district. Lots of shops as well as a couple of OK restaurants. Perfect place if your looking for souvenirs of the vineyard for a less expensive price.

Had a wander round the shops but they all seemed to sell the same old cheap clothes. Not very imaginative or great looking but there were some bargains to be had in some of the shops.

Lots of little shops to browse in. My husband even enjoyed it for a couple of hours. Lots of variety and of course the usual tee shirt shops

This road is lined with basic, touristy shops. Good place to look for tee shirts etc., but doesn't have the charm of Edgartown.

Loved the shops and walking down to the water and park by the gazebo. Go early, it gets very congested.
