Bowie Reviews

I lived outside the city limits and loved the peace and quiet coming from a large city! But in all honesty it's just like any other simi small town, there are going to be things that one person likes and others don't, but that's going to be in any town! Having the utilities drop down would be nice since all my friends to is complain about how high they are getting.
Review Bowie
I live in a small town where nothing is going anywhere. no new business or jobs. a really bad economy and the people here need that but the town's kind of in a rut. I never really had a choice about living here but I'm hoping Nacogdoches is better.
the crime is all small town stuff. like drugs and drinking so there's nothing major like homicide happening constantly to be worried about.
