I love Peachtree City! It is a beautiful place to live! The town was planned. Before they built the houses they constructed golf cart trails that go all around the city. The trails go from the neighborhoods to the stores, restaurants, parks, golf courses, and pretty much anywhere you would go in a car. Everyone owns golf carts. It is the best way to get around. Not only is it scenic, but you don't have to worry about traffic. The schools are very highly rated. It has an extremely low crime rate. It is by far the best place i have called home.

Peachtree City is by far the best place to live in Georgia!

With 80+ miles of golf cart paths, multiple golf courses, three large lakes, tons of restaurants and shopping, plus one of the hottest real estate markets in the state, PTC is the place to be. You can be to the airport in under 30 minutes and to downtown Atlanta in 45 minutes. The area is incredibly safe and crime is very low.
The city is great for young families and older families. They have lots of exciting events and good dining however, for younger people with no families this isn't the most ideal town. Still, lots of friendly people who love to connect which is lovely!
