Enjoy the little shops then take a walk up to the lighthouse. You can actually see where they moved it from a few years ago. This lighthouse you can go up into all the way to the working light.

Great photo opportunity and amazing views. It is across the island so we went straight there and worked our way back to Oak Bluffs marina.
