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... More

Boats, boats, boats...small to large (and very large) lined up along and just outside the Annapolis Harbor at the origin of Main Street. Walk along the water, gaze at the boats, feed the ducks and grab some ice cream at Storm Bros. Maybe grab a water taxi to Eastport or hop on a water tour.

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.

You can't visit Annapolis without spending some time at the City Dock. Formerly the home port for Maryland Waterman. Visit the heart and soul of this waterfront town.

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...

We came in for the boat show and fell in love with the area. All the shops, taverns, restaurants was incredible. Cannot wait to come back.

Interesting ogling at the uber rich and their toys. The walk through was interesting. Who knew boats could be so huge?

Grab an ice cream or coffee and sit and watch the boats go by. Its a busy "parade" of both prople and boats, relaxing.

Over the years I've been on both sides of Ego Ally - on the water and on the land. During the weekends it serves as a little entertainment show of boats and crew who pass by. Or of spectators, restaurants, and boats if you're on the water side. Regardless, it adds to the day in a city known for it's... More
