Bowie Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 67 photos


Bowie was not named aftert the singer David Bowie. And it is pronounced Boo-ee.

The Bowie Mansion was occupied by Governor Samuel Ogle. He occupied the mansion fin 1747.
Bowie was also famouos for raising and racing horses.

Bowie was a charming smallr ailroad town where everybody knew your name. But power hungry politicians with a penchant for tax revenue approved construction of large shopping complexes, office buildings, and turning our small country roads into 6 lane highways.
I used to call city hall and say this is Jim___ and they would reply "I know who you are I baby sat you when you were a kid". Those old timers are far and few between now.
If you wnat to see deforested lands,traffic congestion, and an abundance of hamburger franchises Bowie is the place to see!

Bowie is conveniently located close to historic Annapolis, Baltimore and the nations capitol Washington DC. Bowie is a good place to stay to avoid the high prices and beltway traffic while visiting these cities.
