More to see in Oak Bluffs, you can take an inexpensive bus between all the towns on the vineyard. For a day trip I would recommend also seeing Edgartown.

Have to agree with kendrick. You'll find more history and architectural beauty in Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Very different in their origins and style, by visiting both towns, you'll get a general sense of the 'down-island' scene. The bus is a convenient and hassle-free way to travel between the towns. Edgartown has the Martha's Vineyard museum which is worth the visit.

I'm thinking of taking a day trip from Boston to either Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard. Not sure which is best.

We're not sure either. What would make either best for you?

Cape Cod is actually 15 different towns with over 100 beaches, for a day trip the 2 most workable options are taking the ferry from Boston to Provincetown and spending the day there. You can shop, eat, take a shuttle to the beach, do a dune tour. I am not sure if there is enough time to do a whale watch and still get the return ferry to Boston. Other than that, you really need a car and the best thing to do is pick one area or town on the Cape depending on what you want to do/see.

For the Vineyard, you can take Peter Pan busline from South Station in Boston directly to the Steamship Authority ferry dock in Woods Hole, the ferry ride is about 45 mins and runs all day until 9:30 pm. Check here for options on what to do once on the Island:
