Description

Chartered in March 1959, Peachtree City is a residential area containing 90 miles of golf cart trails. As the golf cart capital of the world, the community boasts a record-setting golf cart parade each year on the 4th of July in addition to parades for most major national holidays. The people here are friendly and welcoming, hosting honorary celebrations for fallen soldiers arriving at the local airport.

There isn’t a local base, but citizens are proud of the fact that most have served or have family serving in the military. Locals have preserved World War II memorabilia at the Commemorative Dixie Wing Museum including planes the Dixie Wing still flies. Captain and Clark appreciated that the citizens “support their veterans, raise their children to be active and aware members of society, and all share a deep-rooted love for this country.”

Shopping and dining opportunities are plentiful in Peachtree City. Residents and visitors can enjoy treasure hunting at one of five village shopping malls. Restaurants feature eclectic and top-notch flavors from around the world. For adventure-seekers, Peachtree City offers multi-use paths, which many use for biking. Lake Peachtree is ideal for picnicking, boating, and fishing.

In addition to their renowned parades, the city hosts the annual Great Georgia Air Show, Shakerag Arts & Crafts Festival, Touch-A-Truck, and the Spring Garden Show. Locals love The Fred amphitheater, Canongate Golf Course, Flat Creek and Line Creek nature areas, and Tinsley Mill. The city is also a short distance to the Atlanta-Hartsfield Airport.

Great July 4th Parade, Memorial Day and Veterans Day celebrations. Can get anywhere in town on a golf cart.

The entire community is part of the celebration, you can literally feel the love of Country here. Come and enjoy the other Patriotic events during the year as well; The Memorial Day Ceremony, The Great Georgia Air Show and the World War II Heritage Days.
