Most Expensive Bowie Neighborhoods
Bowie is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 57,646 people and 23 constituent neighborhoods, Bowie is the 14th largest community in Maryland.

Because of many things, Bowie is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Bowie really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Bowie perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
One downside of living in Bowie is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Bowie, the average commute to work is 35.92 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

But notably, a substantial number of Bowie‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the subway. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
