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 a family. It's a very patriotic town. They just had a wonderful parade with golf carts lined the road plus in the parade. The evening was celebrated with fireworks over the lake. It has many trails for bikes and golf carts to go to the grocery store, restaurants, etc. Just a beautiful place to live.

Lived in PTC for the last 5 years. Warm, family friendly environment with great schools. I am not originally from Georgia but it sure feels like home.

I am disabled and ride my mobility scooter on our many golf cart paths. People wave at me all of the time and often stop and ask about how I am feeling. In the shopping centers, I am approached by people offering to help me, in a variety of ways. When you talk about Friendly, you are talking about Peachtree City!
