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

Ego Alley is a little waterway in the dock area. It runs behind a hotel and the fleet reserve club. It is where people like to show off their boats so they come in and out all day long and you get to see a variety of watercraft. Now if you are military, active or retired you can probably sit...

Either you've got a huge ego when you dock there, or you are one of the 99% who can only dream of such a life. Boats and yachts of all sizes, from kayaks with golden retrievers, to celebrity-sized yachts. find a place on the wall, and be comfy with the fact that most of those boats cost more than your...

I walked through this beautiful area while on a guided tour of Annapolis. The Annapolis City Dock is known to local boaters as "Ego Alley" because it is the weekend and evening scene of a steady parade of expensive yachts.

Nice and very expensive boats--generally restful view from one of the waterside bars. Now and again there is a little excitement as someone forgets how to dock!

After the Naval Academy this thriving area is what makes Annapolis what it is!! It's a drinking town with a sailing problem!! The place to see and be seen whether by land or sea. Whether you enjoying a cocktail at Pusser's or Fleet reserve or enjoying ice cream from Storm brothers you will not be disappointed. Take the water taxi... More

I live in South Florida, so marinas full of beautiful yachts are nothing new to me, but the sight of the sailboat masts as you walk down Main Steeet toward the marina will take your breath away. This is when you know you are in Annapolis. The sight of this small but magnificent dock area against the backdrop of the... More

Nice park, great opportunity to catch a ride on charter boats, such as the Watermark Cruises. Ego alley affords you the chance to see how the other half lives - exotic boats abound.
