Summertime is a magical season. The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood—sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes. We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for our friends and family, and enjoy sweet adventures.

In this issue of Bowie Lifestyle, we want to remind you why summer is a season of opportunity. When’s the last time you played tourist in your hometown? We invite you to discover the hottest local entertainment around. And don’t miss the delectable sips and bites at Thai in Waugh Chapel; they offer delectable dishes you won’t soon forget. And last, but certainly not least, it has been one year since we launched Bowie Lifestyle. It has been an amazing journey.

With so much to see and do, we only scratched the surface of what Bowie has to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start. Happy exploring, Bowie. We hope to see you around!
