Oak Bluffs is a major destination for many folks visiting Martha's Vineyard for day trips.
The Steamship Authority brings hundreds of people multiple times all day. It's not surprising, with the fun t-shirt, souvenir, ice cream and fudge shops, restaurants and arcades - the town has many fun activities.
One may be surprised to find Victorian gingerbread cottages and an historic flying horse carousel.
The cottages are located across from the harbor and are cute, little Victorians that are decorated with all sorts of ornate trimmings. They were built to replace tents Methodists had used for meetings in this part of town in the 19th century.
See some of the Victorian style houses and Peter Norton's house in Ocean Park.
There are many restaurants in town. One of the most popular is Giordano's Family Restaurant. Located in the heart of downtown, they offer a wide selection of hearty Italian food. Many rave about their pizza. We have eaten there with our family and love the food and atmosphere.
There are many restaurants and small stores along the edge of the harbor. There's a nice sidewalk that runs between the boat docks and these shops...one might say it's the "local Harborwalk"
