Peachtree City is a great area to live in! The school system is great and everyone is really friendly. The golf cart paths are great for anyone who doesn't want to spend money on gas or they just want to go on an adventure. The only con about PTC is that it is far from the highway, which means trying to go anywhere in Atlanta is a kind of long trip.

The thing I love about Peachtree City is the fact that it lives up to it’s nickname, “the bubble”. I feel very safe inside this bubble. The majority of the people in the bubble live a comfortable life because a person’s paycheck has to be stable and comfortable for them to live in this suburb. The only thing people don’t see is the struggle inside the doors of people’s houses, which happens a lot here. Everyone puts on happy faces, but behind closed doors we’re like everywhere else; cheating, fraud, drugs, and alcoholics.
Peachtree City is expensive, but it is worth living there. Safety, friendly people, and good schools are a basic few benefits that the city offers. When I first moved to the city it made me feel a little uneasy at first. I had moved from Omaha, Nebraska to Georgia after I finished 8th grade. I had just turned fourteen at the time. Coming from a predominately all-black all boys private school and then going to a majority white public high school, I didn't fit in for the first two years. Overtime I started to adjust to my surroundings not just at school but to the city itself. The more people I introduced myself to the more comfortable I felt. After living in Peachtree City for 5 years now, I honestly wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
