This area around the Annapolis City Dock is the perfect place to meet and mingle. Many shops, restaurants, cater to regulars and visitors and I honestly don't know why you would feel the need to venture out of the area! My favorite place to be!

Restaurants, shops, and boating make up Ego Alley. This area in Historic Annapolis buzzes with night life year round. A fun way to experience an overview is by water taxi.

I own a Tour biz that takes folks in and around Ego Alley. We are there most days, using our all electric vehicles to transport guests around town. An area of great interest is Ego Alley. The roots of the name come from days of old when sailors had great difficulty turn large commercial ships around in what is a... More

This is the City Dock area of Annapolis off of Spa Creek, the Severn River and the Chesapeake Bay. It is so nicknamed because the gold chain set, read power boaters, love to come and tie up their boats here while they drink in dockside bars to be seen (not usually a pretty picture). During the fall the famous Sail... More

Its a nice spot to take a relaxing walk after dinner at one of the many downtown restaurants. There are shops and a few restaurants with water view .

The dock area needed to be closed for renovations. So, there is a fence around the bulkhead and no boats. But believe me, there are plenty of other cool places to walk around and visit.

This section of the downtown is best savored with a latte in hand and a slow stroll. There is almost always a large number of boats to observe and an equal number of pretty people to go along with them. Highly recommended.

I love to just grab a seat and watch all the boats go in and out. You're right across the street from a Starbucks so grab a cup of coffee and take a load off. It's also a pretty good spot to find some parking if you plan on staying for just a little bit.

As it's name implies EGO alley presents a lineup of ever changing sea crafts - coming and going, or docked for the evening. Music, street entertainment, skaters, or just those who wish to stroll around the harbor and soak in the sights, sounds, and aroma of the many restaurants...Ego Alley is the place to be on any weekend night! Fun,... More
