Current Resident: Bowie is the perfect town with lots to offer on its own, with beautiful parks, the best mall/shopping center in the county, movie theater, Six Flags (like 5 minutes away), etc. What it doesn't have (night clubs, lounges, etc.) you can easily hop on the Marc train or metro to get to DC or drive on in through Rte 50, which is a straight shot. Allen Pond park is quaint and gorgeous, and Patuxent River Reserve has tons of activities to do if you are an outdoorsy type. Overall, Bowie is best for raising families and there are children and families everywhere. Very little apartment buildings for this reason, just one or two in South Bowie. Several public schools are the best in the county, and the others are otherwise decent. Bowie has an arts/theater public playhouse, dance schools, lots of aquatics centers and teams, and big on kids sports (soccer, basketball, hockey) and of course the skating rink!
