Cramped, crowded, very narrow street overrun by cars, bicycles and people. Nothing special, just your typical New England style with goods for tourists.

Lots of great shops on this street and lots of nice restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can find just about anything and there is one small grocery store midway down the street. Parking may be tough in the summertime.

Circuit Avenue provides opportunity for a stroll while you visit the shops and food spots. Great shopping for souvenirs and trinkets for yourself as well! It is always fun to try and navigate your way down the crowded summer streets but it is well worth your while.

Lots to do inside the arcade. We enjoyed both skill games and chance games. We had a great time with our grandsons, age 11, 9 and 6. We understand that there is bowling in the Hyannis location.... Would have been fun.

Circuit Ave, is so easy to get to, it is walking distance from the ferries. Everything is there, great food, shopping, places to stay and walking distance to beach. One of my most favorite spots on the Vineyard. Everything is there. The best place to go if you are on the Vineyard for just a day/

Lots of nice small businesses and restaurants on the street. My favorite was C'est la Vie! Roger, the owner, was the warmest and made you feel as if you were his guest! Made you want to buy everything in his store.

Lots to see in this area. One of those places that it's nice to go into every shop and kill some time. We bought some t shirts and sweatshirts for reasonable prices.

I found a lot of these stores to be your typical touist traps! Better shopping is located in Vineyard Haven and Edgartown for sure.

This is the main street in Oak Bluffs and is full of shops and restaurants, most shops are tourist souvenirs but not all. It has a good atmosphere with lots of people just taking their time and wandering in and out of the places and up and down the street. Nice place to spend an hour or so just mooching... More
