This is at the end of Main Street and is a big tourist attraction. We were there in the off season, but there were still boats to look at and people to watch. I understand it if very busy in the summer. Across the street...More

A great place to look at boats and watching the big boats try to turn around. People watching while enjoying an ice cream is wonderful too.

Stinkpotters now fill the Annapolis Harbor to show off their possessions on an ego-based cruise. There was time, not too long ago, when the harbor was filled with oyster boats gunwale to gunwale, and oysters ruled by the bushel. Sadler's and Steven's hardware stores sold...More

If you enjoy perusing boats who's owners want you to see them, you'll enjoy this huge slip at the bottom of Main Street in Annapolis.

We enjoyed walking along Ego Alley. It was interesting to see some of the older boats, which were quite picturesque. Also, we got a good view out over the water from here. It was worth the short walk to get there.

As the name says, it's where all the 'egocentrics' have to pull into, turn around, showing their skills on doing so, showing off their boats.

Ego alley is aptly named, as people drive their boats down it specifically for the purpose of others ogling it. The bigger the better, although you get some junk too. Great place to sip a cold drink at a number of bars on the alley...More

You can sit back and watch the boats docking, the water taxis and the steam boats (tour). There is a limited parking area (PAID metered). Lots of places to eat and around the corner from the Naval Academy. Sometimes there people making and selling crafts.

Cold. No boats, cant sit outside. Visit the shops or the naval academy. Do a walk by ego alley for 15 minutes. Check my other reviews of Annapolis.

Certainly, and there are many outdoor cafes that allow dogs. Indoors is not allowed because of silly health dept rules. Not as liberal as Europe, but outdoors is fine.

If he likes boats he will like this area in summer. I'd suggest a ride around the harbor however. Might be more fun for a 7 year old. Would definitely take the Naval Academy tour. Lot more to see for a younger child.
