Ego Alley is a central gathering point in downtown Annapolis within steps of the many shops and restaurants in this beautiful town. It is fun to watch the crazy boaters try to maneuver in the small space, and you get a closeup view of the yachts of various sizes that park there. There are often various musicians playing and on...

It's called "Ego Alley" for a reason. But it is surrounded by lots-o-food and places to sit. Go for the ambiance, and if you are lucky, some big yacht will venture in and have a **** of a time getting out. Amusing.

I have always enjoyed walking along the pier even in the colder months, there is a great little Crepe shop on the corner to get a bite to eat.

Sit and watch the puffed out chests and decadent boats as they go in out of the dock. Fun to watch up them mess up and need help! Or fall getting in and out of the boat.

It's not only a terrific spot to enjoy the water. For boaters, it's the place to see and be seen. A real heart of Annapolis and a must-see. Great in the summer and an amazing spot during the holidays when owners decorate their boats. Great fun.

This is just a nice relaxing thing to do...sit and watch the boats come in and out of EGO Alley, even if you're not into boating. There is a small plaza to sit at and you can lick on an ice cream cone while day dreaming about owning one of those yachts parked nearby, lol

Ego Alley is the public dock area of Annapolis harbor. Boaters from all over the world guide their boats through this narrow waterway to find a place to dock or just to let everyone see them in their boat. It is fun afternoon is to sit in a cafe on the dock, enjoy a crab cake sandwich and adult beverage... More

Enjoy walking along the harbor to view the boats, small and large. The Harbor is small and easily accessible. Find a bench or dangle your feet off the dock and watch the action.

The benches along Ego Alley are perfect for taking time out from shopping or sightseeing in the city. Stretched along both sides of the harbor that has narrowed to the docks at the intersection of the major street in Annapolis, they welcome visitors who enjoy watching people as well as boats. This is only two blocks from the visitors' entrance... More
