I always enjoy strolling down Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs, MA while on Martha's Vineyard. Tease Outlet located on Circuit Ave is my go to store for inexpensive Souvenirs and Gifts. They are the only store in Oak Bluffs authorized to sell the Front Porch Rocking Chair T-Shirts. Tease Outlets has a great selection and not over priced. Check them... More

Great stores, restaurants and a lot of ice cream places where one can sit and relax. Absolutely must stop at the Gingerbread Cottages. These are quaint cottages that are kept in perfect condition under strict rules. Our server at lunch told us she lives in one that her family has had for generations, so she described what her house was... More

Circuit Ave is basically the tourist thing-to-do in Oak Bluffs. It's a quarter-mile stretch of road with lots of little shops and restaurants. Parking is a little tricky, but if you go around the block, there should be plenty of parking on Kennebec. Only a block away from the ferry.

Everything you need is on this street. Friendly, lots to offer - a bit dicey with the skinny or lack of side walks, but hey - just follow the crowds! This was our go to destination for everything.

Oak bluffs is such a cute little beachy area with circuit ave being the center. This was our first time at Martha's Vineyard at all and I am glad we went. It's much more laid back and more cozy than Newport and I especially liked this area for walking up and down the streets looking in the shops. I would... More

There are cute shops and some good restaurants on this main stretch of Oak Bluffs. If you take the ferry, it is about 2 blocks up the road. We rented bikes and there was a place to lock them up and then walk around and also grab a bite to eat.

In the center of this ocean side community on Martha's Vineyard Island is Circuit Avenue. It is the main drag through this small town, just a couple of blocks from the ferry when arriving by boat. Here lie most of the businesses that you'll want to patronize should you be so inclined to dine or shop. My favorites are the... More

I think Circuit Avenue and MV in general is just a bunch of hype. I must say, I have travel a lot and have been to many quaint islands in the US and abroad and I just don't see what the draw is with MV. I have no desire to return.

Circuit Ave is the 'main street' of OB. There are restaurants, 'night clubs', shopping for touristy items, as well as fine clothing and shoes. At the end of the street there is a great pizza place that does slices to go, and a carousel for the kids. Close by is Jeep and scooter rentals. In my opinion, this is the... More

It's your usual Main Street touristica. Shops, restaurants and bars, and cafes line the street. At night, this is the place to be on Martha's Vineyard. But beware, often times you'll find overprivlidged, underrated children and young adults wandering the streets at night who are in serious need of parental supervision and have no regard rules or polite social behavior.
