Where to Eat in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts

Smoke ‘n’ Bones BBQ:

The slow-cooked smoked barbeque here replicates Southern styles with finger-licking results. On-premise eating is at picnic tables next to the shack, an area affectionately known as “the boneyard.”


Great Attraction in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts

Joseph Sylvia State Beach:
This two-mile stretch of Nantucket Sound shoreline is popular with families because its waves are typically small and there is an ample area of shallow water. Go early. In the summer, parking spots are often full by mid-morning.


Don’t Miss

Flying Horses Carousel
Carved in 1876, the steeds of the Flying Horses Carousel have manes and tails of real hair. Children will enjoy leaning over, attempting to snag a brass ring.
