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.

We really enjoyed strolling this flower landscaped area in Annapolis. I recommend you go in the early AM before the crowds arrive and parking is still possible. Lots of shops, pubs, bars, restaurants and historical sites, all presented regally. Luckily there are many nice park benches and park like areas to rest as you stroll. The Main Street ( Compromise...

This is great spot to just hang and enjoy the waterfront. Plenty of shopping and good restaurants to grab a bite in. After a busy day running around the Naval Academy, head for Ego Alley and watch how it got it's name!
