I've seen more impressive boats but these people love theirs. Head down to the area though to take a cruise and look at the beautiful houses on Spa Creek. And if you like to kayak - this is a great area to do it.

Ego Alley is such an appropriate name. It's fun to sit along the dock or at a restaurant and watch boats cruise back and forth to see and be seen. Also fun is to watch are the teens on stand-up paddleboards. What people used to do when they cruised up and down the street in their cars, these people do... More

Ego Alley was definitely lined with luxury boats but it was just kind of there. There was nothing particularly special about this "attraction".

Ego Alley for sure. Beautiful vessels up and down the dock. We visited for a weekend and it was great to be able to walk by and check them out.

The center of downtown Annapolis is the City Dock also known as Ego Alley. People with babes on board powerboats parade up and down the harbor hence the name 'Ego Alley'. City Dock has a lot of events - farmers market on Sunday, Navy Band in Summer, Car Shows, the Tug of War as well as the Big Boat Shows... More

Best place ever to watch not only land bound people but those on their boats who parade down this narrow strip of water to show off. The boat people are the most fun - we are watching them and they are checking you out. As a bonus you can feed the ducks, check out the Alex Haley Memorial, find outstanding... More

This channel has some very expensive yachts, sightseeing boats, etc. There are numerous shops and restaurant around there too. Parking may be an issue depending on the day and time. Some very expensive vehicles cruise through her too i.e. McLaren. There are tons of people sitting and watching the boats and people. There are performers dancing around or balloon maker.... More

Annapolis Harbor and a very busy place! There are always lots of visitors roaming around this area, taking pictures standing beside the many pilings around the dock, watching the boats coming in and out of the harbor, taking cruises to Spa Bay from the harbor, or sitting on the benches looking out over the water.

Ego Alley offers a wide variety of opportunities for visitors. If you like to shop, there are many great little boutique shops throughout this several block area. Dining options are excellent, from pizza & subs to great seafood, Italian, and American cuisine! Ego Alley has it all. For a great romantic dinner, you've got to try Middleton's Tavern. Most of...

Busy but good place for people (and boat watching). It's close to lots of fun shops and dining options. When we were there we saw a couple of street performers as well. Rich people looking down on you (literally and figuratively) from their big, fancy boats. This is a good place to catch a water taxi and watch the ducks... More
