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.

My family is in the process of relocating to Georgia from Illinois. We fell in love with the beauty of Peachtree City ~ everywhere you looks it's green! Beautiful trees and growing things no matter what time of the year we have been there.

This is not only a very friendly city, it has great community spirit. There is never a shortage of citizens volunteering to make this a better place to live, work and play. The Fourth of July is the most patriotic celebration I have ever experienced with the parade, the fire department demonstrations, the music at The Fred amphitheater, and the fantastic fireworks that evening! A great place to live for all ages. It is a beautiful city of trees, bushes and flowers, low signage, & cart paths through the woods!!

Small town atmosphere, everyone waves as you drive by. I become calm and a smile comes on my face when I pass the sign "Peachtree City, Welcome home"

Full of lakes, creeks, trees, "green belts", wildlife, parks, play grounds, common areas, shopping plazas and extensive golf cart paths make Peachtree City an unique place to raise a family. Very quite and safe, and only 40 mints from Atlanta.
