Bowie, Maryland is age friendly, as I have found that many young professionals live and work nearby. The area is primarily family-focused, and a breath of fresh air in comparison to the hustle and bustle of a "big city" life. Community members are extremely friendly, and everything one could possibly need is conveniently located at the Woodmore shopping center. Necessities like eateries, a fitness gym, and so much more are conveniently located in this quaint area!
