Bowie is a nice, beautiful, and wonderful place to live. Everyone in the community is respectful and inclusive in the neighborhood. It is safe to live with very little crime rates. It is a great place to raise a family and have great schools for the children as well. There are places to shop and find employment. Since it is a nice place to live, the commute to other home and cities
I love it here. It’s nice and quiet. My neighbors are nice and always helpful. It’s been nice growing up here and I’m going to miss it greatly!
Bowie is a very descent place for mature adults to live as residents. Personally, I wouldn't say Bowie is such a family-friendly place but if you are planning to go to stores or malls or movie theaters, it would be a nice to hang out with friends and/or maybe reunite with some of the family members.
It is a beautiful place, lovely areas and things to do in every corners. There are nice scenic places and everything is usually within 15 minutes of each other.
I love Bowie, I have lived in Bowie since I was young. I have made friends and grown to know and learn the landscape and it's hidden treasures.
Been here for 1.5 years and moved from the west coast. I love Bowie! My neighborhood is quiet and clean. Went on vacation mail was supposed to be held package was delivered the first day gone 16 days when I got back my package was still on my porch unopened. Fedex dropped something off the wrong place and my neighbor called me so I can come get it(number was on the package). I like that everything I need is in Bowie as far as stores and there are a lot of grocery stores by me. A few lounges but nothing major. The fourth of July and New Years are super quiet barely any fireworks. I have never heard gun shots holidays or any other days. I am just very happy with where I moved. It is 16 miles from DCA and 17 miles from BWI so getting a flight is easy. There is public transportation but the buses only run every hour, never on holidays, and not on Sunday's. There are not as many speed cameras out here as there are in other places in PG county and DC.
I decided to move to Bowie in 2019 and I am glad we did! Living in Bowie has been wonderful. My area is quiet and the stores are easily accessible. The schools are great and my children love it. My neighbors are nice and friendly.
I love living here. Very diverse, lots of shops and restaurants, good schools, and low crime. Very affordable place to live.
Very safe neighborhood. I live in Fairwood and the community is great. The surrounding Bowie area is also great. Very safe area and commute time to the neighboring metropolitan cities averages out to be cost effective. It has historical elements and an old bowie neighborhood. The local town centre has a ton of great shops. Overall, great town and county.
Bowie is a quiet town with a diverse community nestled in the large county of Prince George’s. It is perfect for building families due to how safe the town feels. The town boasts 2 police stations, a beautiful city hall, and a bustling town center where stores of every variety can be found. While there are many things to do during the day, Bowie is not keen to nightlife: most places will be closed by 10 PM. Even so, Bowie is only about a 20 minute drive to that of Washington DC where the streets are always bustling.
It's a nice and quiet neighborhood. A mix of black and white people. It's a small town. Not a lot of things take place.
I love the peaceful community and local events with a family friendly atmosphere. The city seems to be expanding rapidly which is a downfall and takes away from it known character of a peaceful family oriented town.
Bowie has the lowest crime rate in Prince George's county. One of the reasons why is that it is very difficult to access unless you have a car so public transportation is available buy bus but not by rail. It is the only planned community in the county and is extremely family friendly. The average household income is 80K a year. It is an amazing place to live and raise children and is only 20 minutes outside of Washington, DC and Annapolis, MD. I wouldn't change anything. Bowie is also home to Bowie Sate University which is under the University of Maryland system and is known for the school of nursing.
Bowie is a wonderful place to live, there are many malls and town center you can go to and have fun with your friends and family. The people are very kind and very helpful.
I absolutely love the people here! Everyone is so welcoming. Bowie, Maryland is a great place to reside in if you’re from another state or even another country. If you’re to every visit Maryland come to Bowie first. I promise it’s worth it!
Bowie, Maryland is a suburban city located in Prince George's County. Bowie is one of the best place to live in the Washington Metropolitan Area as it is very convenient to surrounding cities including Annapolis, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. Although it is home to many upper middle class citizens, many houses remain affordable and available. My favorite aspect of this city is the enormous parks and recreations and the safe areas allowing one to exercise, take a fresh breath, and connect with family and friends within neighborhoods without having to worry.
It has been only a year since I moved here and I feel very safe. My neighbors are friendly. Also I am not too far from DC,so I am able to spend time with my friends during the weekends
