Regardless of your preference....Muscle Boat or Tranquility Sail...come see the display down on Ego Alley! Enjoy a cold one, or two or three.....while you're at it and relax to the sounds of Buffett and the Islands in your choice of restaurants. Annapolis hails as the Sailing Capital of the States, but we can still keep up the best of them... More

Ego Alley is really the place to just sit & watch the world go by. Watching all the boats dock on the harbor makes one aspire to own one someday.

Occasionally I visit the Docks in downtown Annapolis and on this day I made my way to the Naval Academy Seawall and spent about 30 minutes on this steamy afternoon watching the variety of "Water Craft" entering Ego Alley as many of their Captains navigated their way toward the downtown restaurants and shops. Ego Alley is the " Water Gateway"... More

This is the center of action in downtown Annapolis which gives a great feel for what makes this town unique. Here you have a view of the water with the harbor in the distance, the dinghy dock for cruisers and the Alex Haley Memorial. Restaurants and coffee houses are within a few steps as is the US Naval Academy, the... More

This is the heart of the City of Annapolis. It's where everyone ends up. It's on the water, has tons of restaurants and ice cream shops and you can sit along EGO Alley and enjoy the day. If you're with a group the dock area is a perfect meeting spot if you want to separate to shop or explore the... More

Interesting ride - unfortunately inexperienced young boaters did not yield right of way (in a small boat vs our 40') which made it a bit difficult to maneuver - but also was on land side earlier in the day and enjoyed both sides!

One of our favorite activities anywhere is to walk the docks looking at boats. This was that on steroids. Because it is short term moorage, people were actually on their boats and you could talk to them. The "alley" is like a short canal right downtown that you can walk most of the way around and look at the docked... More

Ego Alley, aptly named for all of the boaters trolling through the area to be seen, is a must-see part of Annapolis during all seasons. In the summer, grab an ice cream cone from Storm Bros or a crepe from Sofi's Crepes and hang out right on the water for people-watching and good weather. During the winter, come see the... More

There were all kinds of boats docked there but some of the yachts were impressive. I couldn't believe the size of some of them...huge and gorgeous!

What a great place to spend a few relaxing hours and enjoy the water, scenery, boats, and people. I have met some pretty interesting folks here arriving by boat from all over the country. Everyone is pretty friendly and it is so nice to come here and meet other folks just interested in enjoying themselves and checking out of the... More
