Ego Alley, at the foot of Main Street in Annapolis, MD is a place to grab a bite at the Market House, sit, eat ice cream from Annapolis Ice Cream or somewhere else, watch the people and boats. There are dogs of all sizes parading by - sometimes you can see one of the Newfoundland rescue dogs . And then... More

The whole harbor area is charming the small shops in old brick buildings feels authentic and the naval influence is apparent. There are standard restaurants and fast food and the ability to take short boat cruise lasting about an hour.

Beautiful, rich in history! Worth the walk in the heat and humidity! Lots of little places to enjoy to eat and shop.

We love to come here when visiting Annapolis - usually get some ice cream from the local parlor and enjoy just people watching. There's a lovely Tea & Spice Exchange shop here that's great for you spice and tea lovers. Various shops to fit almost anyone's taste. There's even a Black Dog store for you fans. Different places to eat... More

There's another visitors center here. Several restaurants, lots of kids feeding ducks and quite a few benches to sit and try after walking so much! Apparently on Saturdays there are a lot of big, fancy boats showing off. It was pretty quiet when we there on a Friday. If you visit, I'm sure you'll end up here at some point... More

Ego Alley has lots of great seaside eateries and wonderful atmosphere. You can dine al-fresco when the weather permits and just watch the beautiful boats come and go as they make their showoff parades to the spectators.

Ego Alley is the centerpiece of the old harbor....virtually every other essential visit is walking distance from the waterfront. From there you can take a Watermark cruise find some softshell crab or sit on the dock of Pussers Landing. From there in the summer if you time it right you can grade the boats as they slip in and out... More

This is one of the top things to do. You have to have a few drinks at one of the local bars and just watch all the boats that roll in and roll out of this narrow area. I was there for a few hours and watched like 5 or 6 of the same boats go through 3 or 4... More

Ego Alley is fun. You can walk along the dock to watch the boats, the ducks, and the people. Sitting on the Sea Wall, having an ice cream cone, and watching people walk by is better than TV. Also, along the dock area are many restaurants and souvenir shops offering Navy and Naptown items to help you remember your stay... More

Not to be missed. City Dock and the Ego Alley are almost one and the same. All sorts of people show off their boats on a daily basis. The best way to enjoy Ego Alley is sitting at Pussers either invite formal seating or the open seating in the cocktail area. You can get food there also. If you don't... More
