I sure hope they change the name before it goes live. Anyone looking in Bowie will be looking for a long long time. Despite Vista Gardens Marketplace's attempt to claim the higher-rent-sounding name of Bowie, it's really in Mitchellville. The entirety of Glenn Dale is between Bowie and this place.

At least it's not where the pin shows up on the Tesla site, which is the Old Bowie Town Grille. A lovely local pub, but it would be a pretty terrible spot for an 8-bay Supercharger!

The actual location (oh, we're getting a nearby Wawa, eh?) is better, but still quite a ways away from any big highways, as ItsNotAboutTheMoney notes above. Although the round-trip diversion is only 3.9 miles if you're Northbound on I-95. Still might have been able to find something closer.

YEEEESSSSSS!!!!! I never thought this day would arrive. This is on my way to work when I actually have to drive to work again.

Vista Gardens area is only a few minutes to 495.

Now if only a service center would pop up in a 30min or less radius.

Really surprised this location counts as Bowie. Will be great to have a supercharger near the beltway and 50.
Yeah, that ain't Bowie. Technically I guess it's Mitchellville, although nobody knows where that is so I'd be fine calling it Lanham. That's what the Home Depot across the street does. (I think the same developer is building this new half of the shopping center. Anyway it has the same name, prepended with "West".) Calling it Bowie is just gonna confuse people.

It seems a little weird.
That area and the mall across the road are addressed as Bowie, MD.
In the wider area there seems to be a mixture of Lanham and Bowie addressing.
Tesla tends to use the USPS addressing.
