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.

Anyone who visits Peachtree City on the 4th of July knows it's one of the best places to be on that weekend.

While we have many activities that showcase our patriotism, it is the unsaid things that make Peachtree City stand out. We have many veterans and current serving members of the military living here, but no one flaunts it. The whole community lives the principles every day that were set forth by the nation's forefathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.

The parade of decorated golf carts on July 4th stirs the hearts of participants and observers. The entire town comes out for the parade in the morning and the fireworks at night.

I move to Peachtree City from Las Vegas, Nev. five years ago and it was the best move I ever made. I came across a piece on the city in Money magazine and knew I had to raise my two children there. My family and I moved and was there looking for a house six months later. My favorite place in Peachtree City would have to be any golf cart path, taking in the beauty with my beautiful wife. Life is truly good at five miles per hour in Peachtree City. The parade of golf carts is a must see, the citizens really show their love for our country.
