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 schools, numerous lakes, tons of green space, excellent facilities for every sport, miles of golf cart paths, and the best Fourth of July celebration around - who could ask for more? The golf cart parade is a must-see.

Peachtree City was a wonderful place to grow up. 4th of July has always been awesome in PTC with the golf cart parade and fireworks over the lake.

When you think of patriotism what do you think of? If you think of a community that has blossomed in the ideals that our country was founded on, then Peachtree City is for you. This privately funded planned community was designed like a collection of villages. Each community has a local shopping center and everything is wrapped in lush trees. Lakes are dropped throughout the town and everything is accessible by golf cart. Hundreds of red, white, and blue golf carts go zipping along as children play in any of the dozens of parks. This community is a safe and supportive environment for people of all walks of life. It is especially appealing to veterans. The huge amount of support, both emotional and otherwise, is very impressive. The community often rallies together to show their love for veterans who have been wounded. This community isn't seasonal though, and throughout the year you'll be able to find people looking for any reason to come together and have a party. Peachtree City is an all American town that embodies free speech, veteran support, and a pioneering spirit. It is a must-do for any road trip.
