Ego Alley is the center of Historic Annapolis. It is a narrow water way, where boats go up and down. Interesting to see some private yachts, but it is more the place to go to see the stores. If the weather is good, it is a great place to go to just be there.
Wow - the sheer expense of it all. It's abundantly clear that this is the 1% and we are all just spectators. The boats, the Botox bodies, the sheer opulence. Loads of fun to walk around reading the boat names and picking apart the 'small' yatchs from the big brothers. Does need a good sunny day though
Picturesque, plenty of boats, shops, & food - this is a great place to spend the day. Have been here a number of times & always see something new. Give yourself plenty of time to meander around! Oh, and make sure you have your camera!
Ego Alley isn't an alley but instead is the docking location fot boat visitors to Annapolis. For boaters there are slips for rent overnight or longer and for non boaters the wide sidewalks make it a good place to stroll, watch boats, stop to eat at numerous restaurants and fast food places within a block or less.

You can even sit on the seawall to watch the sailboat. There are many restaurants, art galleries, tea shops, tourist information, harbour master and a maritime museum. This... 更多
My wife's father had a 48 ft. Norwegian Sail boat circa 1906. She grew up First Mate so she tried to educate me about the boats. Not the 14 foot fishing boat my father and I had when I grew up. It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed the walk and sights.
What a way to spend an hour or two. Beautiful boats, cruisers, yachts moored, under power, sailing in and out of the harbor or docking just feet from where you are sitting. I was told its name is possibly derived from the size of the owners ego's to own these magnificent yachts. Take a break, buy an ice cream or... 更多
If in Annapolis, this is a great place to just sit, relax and watch the boats. Great location. Surrounded by shops and restaurants not far away.
If you are a sailor, you must visit Annapolis at least once. The downtown, with its famous "Ego Alley" - i.e. where boats can dock to visit the town - is fun, filled with boats from around the world, beautiful and very user-friendly with lots of places to walk, sit, get a water taxi, a tour boat, eat out on... 更多
