“Must Do!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Ego Alley - named for all the hot shot boaters who like to cruise up and down showing off their nautical prowess - is always a joy. Early in the morning it is lovely and calm with very few visitors. Grab a coffee or tea with the locals at one of several coffee shops lining the water then go find a bench or sit on the sea wall and let the place wash over you as the town comes awake. On the weekends the same place is packed with visitors and kids and life and ice creams and sodas and the busy market house. The cafes are bustling and even the outside tables have water bowls for your dog if you want to catch a beer and sandwich while enjoying the day. Ego Alley and the City Dock are unique and well worth the visit.

“Not much to see here”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Maybe I'm jaded because I've been here so many times, but I'm not sure what the big deal about Ego Alley is. There are many more scenic sites in Annapolis. There are some boats, and some restaurants (and I can't say any of them are my favorites), and well, that's really it. Just a touristy spot. Nothing to avoid, but don't make a special trip.

“Touresty part of Annapolis”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Definitely visit Ego Alley and sit for a spell when visiting Annapolis. It's interesting, but I was waiting for all of the "yachts" people write about when mentioning Ego Alley. More like Sea Rays and Fountains.

“Fun Place to Visit the Other Half”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

I love going here to see the big boats at all times of the year. In December they are decorated with light and ornaments. Summer time they are from all over the east coast and Florida. Its a good place to grab a sandwich and a beer at one of the hotels and see those beautiful boats and people.
