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.

Peachtree City is a wonderful place to raise children. Grown Children who have been raised here are coming back after marriage to raise their own children here. There is a strong sense of community. A Mom is not afraid to let her children go to the store because all the shopping centers and sub-divisions are connected by cart path. The Fourth of July Parade is truly home grown. If you want to be in the parade, just register. You can ride your horse, car, bike, walk, and certainly your golf cart. Imagination takes over the decorations, no professionals here.... it's wonderful. The Fourth is not the only holiday involving golf carts, Memorial Day, Patriots Day, Labor Day, Christmas, you name it there will be some sort of celebration. I am so glad we came here 25 years ago.

Sense of community, recreational activities, holiday celebrations, schools and safety are only a few of the reasons we love to live in PTC.

The Fourth of July is a huge celebration here that citizens look forward to each year. A typical fourth includes the parade, where hopefully your kids are part of a float, afternoon at the community pool with family the neighbors for beach volleyball, some brats, and then golf cart to Lake Peachtree for fireworks. The ride home includes a golf cart traffic jam, as literally thousands of carts, decorated in American flags make their way home. It is a great experiemce for families.

Nice place to visit but I WOULD love to live here. PTC is a community of friends - to each other and to visitors who, like us, love to visit our kids.when we are called to "sit" all the neighbors come to offer to acquaint us to the community, to visit, and to offer any help we can use. Nice people. Nice place. . . .Got my vote!

It's a great community all around. Everyone is friendly and the layout of the town provides great convenience that's accessible by golf cart.
