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.

- My "geo-nick" is Martin FFG (Martin, from Franklin, GA) and I am one of the geocaching fanatics in this area. I do not live in Peachtree City. In fact, I don't really live all that close to PTC. It's a little more than an hour drive from my home, and that's only if there's no traffic in between! BUT I've been geocaching in PTC since March of 2002, because you see, the fourth cache that I did (of nearly 20.000) was right there in Peachtree City, GA. I wish I knew the exact number of geocaches that I have done there in all the years, but I do know there have been many hundreds of them. In the beginning I used to feel funny geocaching in PTC, because you are often right behind someone's house, but for several years now, the city has openly promoted geocaching on it's website, and it seems that most of the residents are aware of our sport. This has made PTC one of my very favorite places to geocache. Where else can you go rent a golf cart, and spend the entire day geocaching? But my favorite times in PTC are when I park the car and ride the bike all over town. Peachtree City ROCKS!

- My Geo-nick is JunkingNgeorgia and I have been Geocaching since 2008. Peachtree city is the place I learned to geocache. It has every type of geocaches hidden in the area. Geocaches from a 1/1 to 5/5 and everything in-between. Peachtree City is the place I take anyone that I am introducing to the adventure of geocaching. I know after spending a day caching in PTC they will be hooked. Peachtree City is not just for the beginner, the experienced Cacher will find some of the most creative and challenging caches around. If you live in the Atlanta area it’s worth the drive down to Peachtree City – It’s like having the world’s largest Geocaching Play Ground right in your own back yard.

- Hi there, My name is Baxley. I am a geo-dog and I love geocaching. Geocaching in Peachtree City is always an adventure. There are over 300 geocaches hidden around lakes, parks and winding golf cart paths that are in the forest. I insisted that my owners must hide a geocache near the Peachtree City Dog Park which is one of the premier dog parks in the Southeastern United States. So, Aarf! Aarf! (GC1TAT3) was hidden. Hope you bring your geo-pup along for a romp in the park and to hunt my pawsitively great geocache. There is no bones about it -- my favorite geocaches are "The Tickless Series" and the "Fido Series"!!! And, I love it when I am running the trails with my owners (on leash of course) in search of the next FTF (First to Find). My owners recently bought bicycles to ride the golf cart paths, and will be buying me one of those dog trailers. I know that will be fun! One of my friends took me geocaching on Lake McIntosh in her Kayak. She put a life vest on me and we had a dog-gone great geocaching day. Baxley Woof!

- On August 1, 2013, the Mayor & City Council proclaimed "31 Days of Geocaching in Peachtree City". Gallery photo shows local geocachers in attendance for the ceremony. With approx 300 geocaches in the area, it shouldn't be to hard to grab one a day this month. We sincerely thank the Mayor, City Council & Staff for their support in recognizing the game of Geocaching in this city. Whether your on foot, on your bicycle or your golf cart, there's a "cache" to be found around most every corner.
