I turn an 80 foot vessel around in Ego Alley a couple of times during the summer without a bow thruster and would say that is the max size you would want to try to do this with and make sure no large vessel is tide up at the end for this cuts down on turning radius.

Ego Alley is just that, a little waterway that people use to show their boats off during the boating season; in the winter I have seen small boats moored there for safety. Water taxis can take you from your boat in the harbor to the alley so you can walk around downtown or go to a restaurant. If you are... More

We visited on a weekend getaway from the snow of Pa. This is such a cool place in the middle of town , we just were out walking at night and came across all the boats . We grabbed a coffee and hot tea and enjoyed a walk along looking at the beautiful boats. Such an interesting site in such... More

If you are in downtown Annapolis, stop by Storm Bros Ice Cream and sit down my the water. Evening and weekends especially you will see boats of all sizes but usually real large and expensive cruise in,take a while to make the turn around and head back out. On popular weekends, the same boats can be seen making a few... More

This was really nice to see all lit up. There is one sailboat that is decorated in the theme of "A Christmas Story" complete with a 10 foot leg lamp. Downtown Annapolis was very busy the weekend after Christmas.

Right off of Main Street, there are a lot of restaurants, bars and nice stores. This is a good place to walk in a nice weather day.

Ego Alley is a central gathering point in downtown Annapolis within steps of the many shops and restaurants in this beautiful town. It is fun to watch the crazy boaters try to maneuver in the small space, and you get a closeup view of the yachts of various sizes that park there. There are often various musicians playing and on...

It's called "Ego Alley" for a reason. But it is surrounded by lots-o-food and places to sit. Go for the ambiance, and if you are lucky, some big yacht will venture in and have a **** of a time getting out. Amusing.

I have always enjoyed walking along the pier even in the colder months, there is a great little Crepe shop on the corner to get a bite to eat.
