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.

Where else in the US can you take your golf cart out of your garage and go watch the 4th of July parade, watch the fireworks at night over the lake, golf cart around the beautiful lake on Memorial Day in a golf cart parade to City Hall Plaza to honor our veterans, and have 90 miles of paths to ride, walk, run and play on? We are so patriotic, we honor our veterans at our airport, Falcon Field with a ceremony every Veterans Day. When our beloved, brave soldiers come home from the war(s) to be buried at home, we salute them at Falcon Field and motorcade them all the way their devestated families. We line the route to honor them. We live, breathe, eat and sleep red, white and blue!

Peachtree City is the best place to live!! Everyone is friendly and the entire city is beautiful! Since moving to PTC 22 years ago the 4th of July has become my favorite holiday! I love the golfcart parade, the water, fire and safety demonstrations from the fire deptartment and finally topping the night off with the best fireworks in the south!
