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.

The People are Great, the Weather is Good and the city is just Awesome!

I hate that we can only vote for one category, because PTC is also a shoe in for "Most Beautiful". I have lived here for 22 years and PTC and its residents are proud of our country and its heritage. The 4th of July parade is at the top of the list for participation,patriotic floats, bystanders dressed up in the red, white and blue and the parade of golf carts all decked out is an amazing sight to me still after all these years. There is a monuent at City Hall commemorating its citizens who have served and name bricks surround the monument. Memorial Day has the Scouts leading the Pledge at City Hall and of course, the golf carts are decked out yet again in the red, white and blue of our country. We have a Heritage Days weekend that showcases WW II with re-enactments. The fire dept. each Sept. 11 places flags in the ground in memory of the day and it is a beauiful (but sad) sight to see. We have a large military presence in our town and that helps inspire people. I know I am missing a few things I am sure, but patriotism is very alive and on display in our town. Come out on Memorial Day, and especially the 4th and see for yourself. It is amazing!!

Peachtree City is known for it's golf cart's. On July 4th you need to see the Patriotism of all the people in Peachtree City. Not just in the parade but every golf cart is decorated with something associated with red, white & blue.
