Boats come in to be adored; but the turnaround is to small to accommodate large boats. Save your energy for the shops nearby. If you are a painter, stand at the end of the wharf and paint to your hearts conent.

This is a fun and easy walk where you will see all sorts of yachts and lovely little restaurants and cafes to grab a bite or cocktail. Pretty and scenic.

Boats of all kinds and escription come to ego alley to show off their finest. Watch the daily parade of these vessels all day long. Take a water taxi to see the sights from the water, or stroll the quay.

Good place to look at obscenely expensive boats you can't afford. Maybe you will see Mick Jagger or Stallone's yacht.

If you want a place to people watch and spend some quality time with that special someone, no place better than Ego Alley. There are numerous places close by to grab a drink or food. After, sit by the water at sunset, watch the boats...More

Ego Alley is a great place to walk along the water, watch boats come through Ego Alley and listen to musicians playing their guitars or other instruments. A very young musician, although excellent, was demonstrating his skills and receiving donations right and left. You can't...More

Walk along the inlet and see many boats. Most of good size and expensive. Better and larger boats are moored out in the harbor. Ok but not something I would plan my trip around.

If you are downtown Annapolis, you must walk along Ego Alley and look and the boats, the people, and the water. Plenty to see, and buy, and eat while you are there. It's a nice time every time.

We took a trolley tour that was fun. There are boat tours but we didn't have the time. There are lots of free things to see at the Naval Academy. If I had the time there were museums that I wanted to see. Wear your... More
