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.

You an go anywhere in an electric golf cart! Dentist, grocery store, doctor, restaurant, etc. It is a very magical place where the second car is the golf cart. We parades with the golf carts all decorated up to honor the 4th of July, Memorial Day, and many others.

Peachtree City is one of those towns that you just love to call it home. It represents the values upon which this country was founded (love of God and Country). This city has a parade of golf carts all decorated with red white & blue parading around the city on all patriotic holidays. Flags, wave in neighbors yards throughout the year. They represent pride and support for the country. This is a very friendly town and should definitely be included in your top 50 "most patriot" cities in the USA.
