This road basically drives through the gingerbread house community. There was construction while we were there, but we took a little path into the community circle and saw all of the beautiful houses.

Skip this. Not like movies set it up to be. Boring, boring, boring. There's a few shops, but most weren't open or closed at 4pm.

Circuit Avenue offers a variety of shops and restaurants. It is also the gateway to the Campgrounds. Circuit Avenue is a fun one long city block stroll. There is store for everyone in the family. I am biased because I live on Martha's Vineyard.

We visit the Vineyard at least once a year for a week or more and never tire of strolling along Circuit Avenue and to pop in and out of the shops. There are so many local merchants and iconic shops that invariably we wind up buying something even if we didn't intend to do that initially. Some good restaurants too.... More

Whether you like to shop, browse, people watch or explore Circuit Avenue is a place to do it all! Be prepared to spend money. Some shops are pricey but others are reasonable. I suspect if you go closer to the end of season you might get some good deals!

Shopping on both sides of the street; a variety of stores sell different items and items are reasonable parking may be tight at times; there are Ice Cream shops, clothing shops, candy shops and an Inspirational shop. Friendly services.
