Ego alley is cool but it is polluted if you fall in the water here there is like a 50 50 chance that you will be infected with ebola virus and they will most likely have to amputate one or both of your legs. Though...More

you will have to walk this area if you go here just to see the massive boats, and ships that come in here. The view is awesome from the circle in town.

Find a place to sit and watch all the people and their boats. The yachts are beautiful. The water is gorgeous.

Apparently this is where people who own boats, and other seafaring 'toys' drive their vessels up this channel which comes right into Downtown Annapolis where people sit and eat ice cream or just 'people-watch'. A great place to be.

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.

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.
