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.

We call this home after 33 years. The Fourth of July in Peachtree City is like one huge block party. People from out of town come early in the morning and stay all day to celebrate with us.

When it comes to 4th of July Peachtree City knows how to celebrate! Where else can you start the day with a parade lining the street with patriotic floats, and decorated golf carts! Then, the day ends with an impressive firework display over Lake Peachtree that draws people from all around this great little community to be part of the patriotic celebration!

Thousands of Red White and Blue Golfcarts, Blankets laid out 3 or 4 days before the celebrations start so people can stake out their fireworks watching spot, golf cart and float parade with music, food, friends, and families... best parade and fireworks display by far.

There is no place like PTC on the 4th of July! My kids anticipate the golf cart parade and fireworks display all year long!

Peachtree City is a unique place to live. It is a planned community built around the Village Concept with 93 miles of golf cart paths as an alternative to drving, taking a low and enjoyable walk, riding your bike or driving your golf cart. I am voting for it because 24 years ago we came, saw and stayed. It is a community of neighborhoods where you have the feel of a very small town while living in a population of over 34,000. You won't find another place just like it. Come and see for yourself.
