Fun place to see and be seen. There were a few folks who'd over indulged, but the crowd was generally kid friendly. Recommend getting an ice cream cone at Storm Brothers and going for a stroll.

Average, at best. There are many places in many towns where one can go to get a better vantage point for boat watching.

Ego Alley - named for all the hot shot boaters who like to cruise up and down showing off their nautical prowess - is always a joy. Early in the morning it is lovely and calm with very few visitors. Grab a coffee or tea with the locals at one of several coffee shops lining the water then go find... More

Maybe I'm jaded because I've been here so many times, but I'm not sure what the big deal about Ego Alley is. There are many more scenic sites in Annapolis. There are some boats, and some restaurants (and I can't say any of them are my favorites), and well, that's really it. Just a touristy spot. Nothing to avoid, but... More

Definitely visit Ego Alley and sit for a spell when visiting Annapolis. It's interesting, but I was waiting for all of the "yachts" people write about when mentioning Ego Alley. More like Sea Rays and Fountains.

I love going here to see the big boats at all times of the year. In December they are decorated with light and ornaments. Summer time they are from all over the east coast and Florida. Its a good place to grab a sandwich and a beer at one of the hotels and see those beautiful boats and people.

We live in Annapolis and love to stroll downtown and walk along Ego Alley. Phillips is back and better than ever! Also, the new Museum Store is open and full of great gift ideas. Try it!

The area is truly unique. The free trolly is so convenient and punctual! The only thing that took me off guard was the amount of tickets being issued on overdue meters. The town was busy, as it was a weekend, they seemed to be relentless. We were scared to death to allow our meter to lapse - so we had... More

We loved sailing into Annapolis and trying our hand sailing into, coming about and out of Ego Alley. it's a tight sailing challenge and the winds will not always accommodate, so you are free to drop sail and motor through, enjoying the boats tied up and the water view of the historic area before finding a dock and getting your...
