Being a little city just outside of a major metropolis means that you don't have to offer much other than your standard shopping center, fast food chains and thats about it. Bowie does this but luckily it has a bit more. Nice dog park, nice minor league baseball team and Six Flags just down the road. Bowie is close enough to anything you'd need. Even a beach at Sandy Point Park is only a 20 min drive.However, it's below average when it comes to Nitelife, unique dinning and general shopping. There's a Target, a Walmart, a Home Depot, a Lowes and a couple different grocery stores. Bowie is also more than just one location and at the few locations that call themselves Bowie, they all have the same thing. Gas, minor shopping a CVS yada yada yada. Bowie proper is the one that has the ball park, the dog park, the Target/Walmar the Lowes/Home Depot. There's even a Harley Davidson store nearby. But thats really it. Your standard fast food chains are in Bowie proper and if you're good with all this, then Bowie would be a nice place to live. It's quite, it's outside the city (although theres still too much traffic everywhere you go) and it's easy to get to the city or even just into the closest metro stop (Greenbelt). All in all, Bowie isn't going to wow you, and you'll probably find yourself going to Laurel or Croften more and more because those two small towns have better shopping and dinning options.
